– Okay, ready? – Yes! – Let’s do this. (laughs) – What you got there? – Sweet babies. (laughs) Music: Stump Kitchen, Stump Kitchen, Gluten Free Vegan eats and Stumptastic treats! – Sweet plantain! Okay, so.
.. (laughs) – Welcome to stump kitchen! – I am thrilled, this is Nasra. – It’s me. – Yay, I am so glad that you’re here. – I’m freaking excited! – Me too. Do little jumps now I’m happy. What’s the sitch? – We’re gonna make some sweet treats.
– Wah? Okay today we’re gonna make, we’re gon fry up some plantains. A staple in many Caribbean food. Shout out to my Afro Caribbeans out there. Who dun tell me how to fry one up. Plantanos maduros for my Latin Americans.
These ones, you know they little, they soft, we got some softness. They gonna be like on the medium to sweet side. If you want it real sweet, get em’ black. (giggle) We need a knife. – Knife! – A sharp thing.
– I have many sharp things in this house. – Today I’ll be using number- What kind of knife is this? – I don’t actually know what it is. – Wow! – It’s a sharp Japanese knife. – A sharp Japanese knife; TM.
(laughs) – So basically, you’re gonna- – Which one should I do? – You get the juicy one. – The juicy one, okay! – So you wanna cut off the tips. – The tips. – Just the tip, alright. Oh no… Oh no! Anyways.
.. So now you’re gonna want to slice down the side. All you want is the peel; not all the way. It’s like a fancy way of doin’ it. Now you’re gonna go on the other side too if you want. – They’re so like starchy compared to a banana.
– Yeah these ones are a little bit more starchy for sure. Now you split it open and you have a plantain! (laughs) – That’s amazing, I can’t get into mine. – Nasra help! -You need some help? You need some help? – Oh this one’s a little.
.. okay, okay. This not ripe yet. Let’s try this one. – That one? Okay. – There we go. – This is way easier. – Yup. Look at that technique! – Thank you! – Getting my stump all sticky. – Heh heh, sticky stump.
This is the best- (laughs) – It’s like a little hammock or a sleeping bag. – And then, you wanna cut these up on a slant. – When they’re like really, really dark, and really ripe you get these like thicker chunks and they’re just like delicious, like heavy, sweet, sticky, magical things.
If you’re more on the, like this kind of side, I like to do them a little thinner. Because they’re be a little more like chips. I don’t know exactly why this is the technique. For a plantains; you could cut them just like bananas, but I just learned them like this so.
.. – Can we try one raw? – Um, yeah, I don’t think I’ve- Let’s do it. Cheers. It tastes like banana. – Mm! – It tastes like plain banana. It’s lovely. It’ll be nice when we fry it up. – I just had them in the Caribbean in Grenada.
I was like going to the food court and I was like I could just pick platanos and just take, that’s an option? Yes please. I just got side dishes. I got like two boxes of the sides of plantains. They’re like, okay.
There you go plantains you did well. – We did it. So now what? – Now, well I guess we could heat up the stove a little bit. Let’s heat it up. I like to just start it at like medium-ish. – Okay. – You don’t want the oil to get too hot.
– Okay. – Too fast, it burns everything up. – It’s brand new! – It’s only the best. Yes, get it. – I know coconut oil as the hand moisturizer. – Oh yes. – Body moisturizer after a bath. – Yeah, after your bath.
– Make sure your like pores are open, because otherwise you’re just greasing yourself. That’s like slip and slide. – Alright, you just want to put a little bit. – Here we go. The heat is on. – Okay, so let’s each take- – One.
– Let’s just test it out and see what’s- – Oh yeah. – Oh, yay! – Now we’re just gonna put them all up in there. – Okay. – Slow heat. That’s great yeah, because then you need room to flip em’ and twist em’.
Bop em’ and turn em’. – We got a plantain down. – Plantain down. I was like that’s squishy. – Did you step on it? – No. You see they’re sticking together. – Cuz solidarity, it’s real. – They’re gonna be delicious.
– You wanna- Oh, violence. – (laughs) – Will it never cease!? – Today I’m using… (laughs) – You’re gonna get a plantain on your hair! – We specifically said no food in the hair. – I like to use the criss cross method.
– This is real cooking tips right here. Pay attention. – Plating is everything. – They smell so good. – Like deliciousness. (singing) Aaahhhhh! We’re just gonna give them a little cool down. So you can eat them just the way they is or.
.. cinmmanin. (laughs) – And it’s nice when they have a little bit of oil on them because then it like stays. – Wow. – Here we go. – Bon appetit. – Thank you. – Mmm! – Mh-hm – It’s like fruit bread and what even, excuse me? – Fruit bread.
It’s like sweet fruit bread. Okay this is like- K. I’m having a little moment here. This is like an amazing gluten free alternative, for breakfast bread, dinner bread, lunch bread, chips and dip. Thank you for changing my world.
– You’re welcome. – This is so good. Tell the world where we can find more of you. – Nasraadem.com, instagram. – I’ll link it right here. It’s all in the zone there. – You can see me on any of those and you know what I’m messing up next.
– Definitely. – That would’ve been dramatic and then end of the video. Support me by supporting people like me and there are two initiatives that I’m like, come through community! One this, Newcomers are lit.
Which is an amazing group. Of Newcomer youth, who are bosses. Getting them to the youth action conference in Toronto. So that they can learn some amazing skills and come back and just surge the community.
Also, you can support LGBTQ refugees. A lot of the time we like to think about Canada at large. But also Alberta being this welcoming place for a lot of different cultures. But, even though it is sometimes, not everyone has that experience.
So we wanna make sure that those stories are highlighted. The way that’s happening is A Long Road to Peace, the documentary by Katie Cutting and Adebayo. We’re having a whole day, a weekend of stuff. A panel, so you can talk to people that are working on it.
Also, we’re gonna be doing a little party at the Aviary. And we can, you know, celebrate ourselves and celebrate the spectrum of stories that we have. Especially as like queer people. – We will see you there.
