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.
