Mashed Plantains with Leek

Serves 2

Saute leek with thyme, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper over medium heat until soft and tender. Gentle browning is good. Remove to a medium bowl.

With a paring knife, cut a long slit in the peel of the bananas. Wrap tightly in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes. Remove and carefully remove the paper/plastic wrap. Watch out for steam! When cool enough to handle, remove the peels. Roughly chop and add to leek mixture.

Add liquid and sour cream. Mash well. Taste, add salt and additional liquid to taste. Serve.
