Here's the second part to the Cuban feast mentioned in yesterday's post (from Food Network's Rachael Ray). It took me a little while to extract the recipes from Rachael's mess of instructions. I get the concept behind mashing four recipes into one overall set of directions, but unless you plan on making an entire feast, the individual recipes are damn hard to follow.
--3 Green Plantains
--1/2 cup Chicken Stock
Slit the skins of the plantains from end to end (to vent them for microwave cooking). Wrap each plantain in wax paper, twisting the ends. Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes together (or 90 seconds individually). Peel and mash with the chicken stock and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt.
