Jerk Lentil & Plantain Bowl
Get ready for a taste bud vacation! In this Caribbean-inspired bowl, green lentils packed with fiber and calcium are seasoned with jerk spices and simmered with tomatoes and Swiss chard for an aromatic, coconut-forward combo. It's all topped off with charred peppers and sweet, ripe plantains (for those tropical island vibes).
What is jerk?
Jerk is a cooking style native to Jamaica in which meat or vegetables are rubbed with a mega-mixture of spices and slow cooked over pit fires for a deep, smoky taste. Jerk seasoning usually consists of allspice, scotch bonnet peppers (we used traditional red), cloves, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, and scallions.
Ripe plantains are banana’s sweeter, softer cousin, and are a rich source of fiber, and vitamins A, C, and B6.
Just as nutritious as they are bright, red peppers are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, and potassium.
