Ashley from The Unintentional Vegan has some of the best round up posts, which she calls Crowdsource Recipe Testing. She posts fabulous recipes from around the web.

Remember the amazing caramelized onion bacon dip I raved about a while back? I discovered that through a Crowdsource post.

Ashley recently asked me to participate in Crowdsource by making and reviewing a recipe. Of the many delectable offerings, I chose black bean and plantain fritters.

Read my review and see the original recipe here – black bean and plantain fritters. Thank you Ashley for having me!

Beautiful. I’ve never tried plantains actually.

Heather you might really like them, especially using them in a dough similar to this. They have less flavor than a banana (most similar in my mind…), and are very versatile – you can make them sweet or savory. I bet you guys would like this recipe!

if you love both of those things, you NEED to make these, Nora! and if you’re not a spicy fan, add whatever flavors you’d like! these are SO good!
