A soft, mellow alternative to regular bread. And it only requires 2-3 ingredients. Roll it out thin enough and you can even turn it into a wrap to fill with vegetables, beans and whatnot. It's great for tearing, sharing and dipping into hot & spicy soups. Try it with bean chilli too.

(serves 4)
- 2 ripe plantains
- 2-3 cups wholegrain flour
- 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)

Peel and cut the plantains into small chunks. Place in a large mixing bowl and add the chilli powder. Add the flour slowly, mixing as you go along, until you have a firm dough. 

Wrap the dough in some cling film and refrigerate for 20 mins. 

Take the dough out of the fridge and divide it into 4-6 portions. Roll each portion out on a lightly floured surface to form a round flatbread shape.

Cook each piece in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat for 5 minutes on each side (or until it has browned nicely)


  1. Hmm. Interesting. Is this really possible?

  2. Better believe it! Definitely worth a try :D

  3. BTW - I nominated you for a Liebster award.

    1. No way! Thanks :) I'll have a look to see what it's about.

  4. I love this blog! I'm dating a Nigerian man and have wanted for a long time to cook some Nigerian food for him, but found it hard as a vegan. So glad I stumbled onto this site!

    1. I'm glad you did too! :D Thanks for stopping by + happy cooking!
