Mushroom Plantain wraps

Wraps - Mushroom5

About:

Plantain and mushrooms are nicely flavoured with cheese in these delectable wraps. For an easy meal, serve with colourful salad. This combo of plantain, mushroom makes an incredible taste explosion

I have always swooned over plantains with their sticky sweet, starchy flavour and texture, like a cross between a sweet potato, banana and own unique hearty, exotic flavour.

Health Benefits:
Plantains are a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, potassium and are about 220 calories each. The sweet flavour isΒ remarkable.
