Unripe Plantain Porridge Cooked With Goat Meat

 cooking unripe plantain porridge with goat meat
Unripe plantain porridge is so healthy and energy giving.
 I can comfortably eat this as my breakfast, lunch or even dinner.
When cooked with goat meat,
unripe plantain porridge reminds me of how in my local community,
this is a traditional breakfast meal.
Cook this with bush meat and it gives another wonderful yummy taste.
With smoked fish, you just end up over stuffing your stomach against your wish.

Unripe plantain is so, so healthy that we need to come up with ways that can help us eat more of it. Diabetics especially eat unripe plantain a lot, and I hear it is good because, it is not yet ripe and has not turned into sugar.. Making it into porridge will help anyone eat plantain more frequently.
Enjoy and continue to eat  healthy!
