  • Ready In

  1. Place plantains in a large pot and cover with water and salt. Bring to a boil; cook until plantains can be easily pierced with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain plantains and cut lengthwise to remove veins; cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Place plantains, butter, milk, nutmeg, and white pepper in a food processor and pulse until creamy. Sprinkle cheese on top.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Although the original recipe calls for heavy cream, I like to use regular 1% milk to make it lighter. It tasted just as good and is much healthier, too!
