Sweet Plantain Guacamole

SERVES: 4 | PREP TIME: 15 minutes | COOK TIME: 10 minutes


2 tablespoons coconut oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 large brown plantain, peeled and diced

2 tablespoons water

3 large avocados, cut in half and pitted

¼ medium white onion, finely chopped

handful of cilantro, roughly chopped

1 teaspoon minced jalapeño pepper

juice of ½ lime

¼ teaspoon smoked paprika

fine-grain sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Place a small skillet over medium heat and add the coconut oil. Once the coconut oil is hot, add the garlic to the pan along with the diced plantain. When the plantain dice begin to brown, salt them, then flip to brown on the other side.
  2. Add the water to the pan and cover to steam the plantain. Once the plantain dice are soft, remove from the heat and let cool.
  3. While the plantain is steaming, scoop out the insides of the avocados and place in a large bowl. Mash up the avocado with a fork, then add the onion, cilantro, jalapeño, lime juice, smoked paprika, and salt and pepper. Mix well, then fold in the plantains. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
