When you can’t travel and visit the marvelous countries that the world has to offer, food might be an alternative, at least for your taste buds. Today, we’re taking a culinary trip to Reunion Island, which hides a variety of recipes with rougail (a traditional hot salsa). Though it is usually cooked with fish or meat, we decided to propose you one with plantain.
2 plantains (around 300g)
Salt to taste
1 tsp Bouquet garni
1 tsp red hot pepper paste
1/2 clove of garlic
100g crushed tomatoes
1tsp cane sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
1. Cut the plantains into cubes
2. Chop the onion
3. In a pan, heat the oil and cook the onion for 2 minutes or until soft.
4. Add the Bouquet garni, crushed tomatoes, cane sugar, salt, water, garlic and the tomato paste.
5. Add the plantains.
6. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes. Mix well with a wooden spatula from time to time so the preparation doesn’t stick to the pan.
