About this project
In all sincerity, plantains (cooking bananas) do not receive the attention they deserve. So, are you one of those people who steer clear of them? Then you are sure to change your mind with these plantain patties, because these patties taste nothing like bananas.

Peel the plantains, cut them into large pieces and bring them to the boil in plenty of water. Cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat, then drain and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Finely dice the tofu. Finely chop the spring onion, garlic and chilli. Combine with the plantain, curry powder, salt and 4 tablespoons oil in a food processor and finely purée.
Wet your hands and shape the mixture into four patties. Brush the patties with the remaining olive oil and cook over direct heat for 4–5 minutes each side.
Grate the carrot and mix it with the lime juice, olive oil and salt. Fill the chicory leaves with the mixture and top with vegan yoghurt and parsley. Serve with the plantain patties.
