I can already see my Ugandan friend’s face distort in a grimace! Boiled plantains! Sacrilegious! Plantains are never boiled in Uganda, only steamed! Well, people do boil them in Côte d’Ivoire and they taste fantastic. I even heard of an Ivorian immigrant in NYC who only lived on one boiled plantain a day for 3 months, so he could save money… They really are that nutritious, healthy and satisfying! Who knows, maybe Ivorians can convert Ugandans on that one!
