Since mofongo isn't a meat-focused dish, preparing a vegan mofongo is actually quite easy. I never really cared for the meat part of the mofongo, anyway. Leaving the meat out? Do it!
Mofongo is a Caribbean dish made with plantains. You may see this dish in countries like Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. It may heard of it going by the name, "mangú." The difference is that mangu is boiled and mofongo is fried.
It's also one of those dishes where it's fair game to add whatever your stomach desires. You can add seafood, vegetables, tempeh, or beans to mofongo. Yes -- recipes that you can tweak! ^_^
What You'll Need:
1 Green, Unripe Plantain
Salt & Pepper
How To Make It:
1) Peel plantains and cut them into 1-inch chunks.
2) Fry them in oil until golden. Drain oil and dry pieces with paper towels.
3) Smash pieces and then shape them into balls.
4) The goal is to get the outside of the ball crispy, and soft in the inside.
