Total honesty here. I am somewhat a newbie when it comes to plantains. I mean I love eating plantain chips, but I had never really ventured into cooking with them until I had delicious a plantain soup at a local restaurant. It was after having that soup that I decided I was going go home and play around with my own version of this creamy goodness in a bowl.
Roasting some of the ingredients was almost a given. I mean, I don’t know what it is about roasting, but the flavors just seem to explode, so why not try it with this dish.
Combining the semi-sweet flavors of the ripe plantains with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes worked perfectly (in my opinion).
This soup is creamy, tangy, and new favorite of mine for sure.
