Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
10-20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 7-ounce tub of Laura Chenel Spreadable Goat Cheese
  • 2 green or slightly yellow plantains
  • 5.5 ounces dried figs
  • 1.5 ounces aged rum
  • 3 ounces water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Enough olive oil to fill pan 1/2"
  • Cold salt water

Instructions

1. In a food processor, combine dried figs, rum, water, cinnamon and sugar until smooth. Add salt to taste.

2. In a nonstick skillet, fill 1/2" with olive oil and set over medium heat. To prepare plantains, slice on a sharp bias so plantains are about 1" thick. Fry until plantains start turning golden brown. Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels. Transfer to cold salt water bath for at least 1 minute, then remove and let dry on paper towel. Put already-fried plantains back into oil and smash with spatula until less than 1/2" thick. Fry until edges are browned.

3. Serve immediately on a plate with Laura Chenel Spreadable Goat Cheese and the fig rum spread.
