    My mum was always the one that played around with her food and created recipes like Chicken and Shrimp Pancakes. We never understood it but we went along with it.

    Plantain Gnocchi and Minced Meat Sauce

    At this point, it is safe to say I am slightly addicted to plantains. I mean I have an e-book dedicated to plantain recipes which I should probably update with this plantain gnocchi recipe.
