Being from Nigeria, plantains made with eggs and tomatoes is a standard meal for breakfast. I was thinking how can I have the same meal but on the go and more healthy. Thats when plantain muffins came to mind. To my fellow Nigerians its like have plantain and egg stew in one bite. So if your looking for some more meal prep ideas this will be perfect for you. I hope you enjoy my creation as much as I do. Lets go on a tasteful ride.
1 ripe plantain
1 tomato (chopped)
1/2 of a small onion (chopped)

1/ tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of black pepper

Cut plantain into 1/2 inch pieces. Season with a little salt. Heat up a coconut oil in a frying pan. Sear on one side for 3 minutes each and remove from heat.
Spray cupcake pan with PAM. Take 2 pieces of plantains and mash (using fingers) into bottom of an individual cupcake space. Making sure to cover the bottom.( See picture below) You should have about 5-6 cups.
Mix eggs, tomatoes, onions, habanero and above spices.
Using a measuring cup pour in egg mixture into each cup, filling it about 3/4 full *
