Pumpkin and Plantain Mash
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
I made this today for the Cook's Corner ingredient challenge for the week of 9/22. I wasn't able to find a pie pumpkin so used a butternut. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. When the squash and plantains were tender, I had some difficulty mashing it by hand so I pulsed it in the food processor. After tasting I added another teaspoon of bronulated brown sugar. I placed the mixture in a glass pie plate and topped it with the shallots. Because I don't like to waste anything, I toasted the squash seeds and garnished the finished dish with them. Thank you Donna for this unique dish. I love the taste of the plantain and, if it weren't for the challenge ingredient, I probably would not have tried this recipe. I am glad that I did. It is a wonderful, savory side dish! I will definitely put this in my keeper file to make again.
