  • Cook it.
    Place a pot over medium heat and gently pour in the blended green plantains. Stir it with a wooden spoon to prevent it from sticking to the pot.
    When you notice lumps forming, press them against the pot to smooth them out. Cook it for about 15 minutes. Cover it with a lid and steam for about 2 minutes.
