You don't truly appreciate food until you know how it's made. Something I've come to realise more and more as my cooking adventure progresses, and I'm loving every moment of it!
This particular stew is my favourite stew, second only to the vegetable stew I made earlier. I'm infinitely more impressed with this stew because of how EASY this is to make. Seriously, you'd think something this aromatic would require multiple stages of cooking to truly develop its flavour. Nope. I have much to learn on this journey :P
It was at this moment the penny dropped. What REALLY brought out the flavours in this stew are its ingredients - the stars that truly SHINE. Plantain and coconut milk. The spoils of mother nature couldn't get any better than this.
5 ingredients. 5 servings. 5 minutes
Okay, fine, more like 10 minutes, but I liked the list of three with the '5' being the common theme, hehe. Work with me here!!
