@Pippinwhite -- Just check the Internet. There are tons of plantain recipes on there. You're sure to find something you'll like. I've used plantains, and I liked them. They're different, but they're good. I don't get them that often, but they're very good when I want something with a little variety.
I don't care for cooked bananas at all. I don't like their texture. They're too mushy. I like banana bread, and fresh banana ice cream, but I am not a fan of cooked bananas. I do like them blended in smoothies, though. They give them a lot of body and fiber.
