Some may be asking ‘ What us a plantain?”  A Plantain is a banana-like vegetable, sometimes mistaken for a banana. The cool thing about this veggie is that it can be eaten at 3 different stages.

1st stage is green, its more of a hard starchy vegetable (like a potato). 2nd stage is yellow, which is kind of up to you what your looking for. They are sweeter now, but yet still have a crunch factor to them.. and lastly.. 3rd stage is black, which are most like a banana.
