Green Plantain Empanadas


  • 2 plantains
  • ¼ cup water, boiled
  • 1 ½ tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt, turmeric, pepper, and garlic powder
  • Peel and cut the plantains into chunks.
  • Place the stainless steel inner pot inside the Instant Pot®. Press Multigrain and set time to 25 Minutes (calculate until they are soft and you can easily insert a fork).
  • Using a fork, mash the plantains until puréed. Add the boiled water, olive oil, salt, and spices to taste, mixing very well.
  • Knead with your hands until shaped like empanadas and fill with filling of choice. In my case, I chose cheese.
  • On the Instant Vortex control panel, press Bake, then set time to 12 Minutes and temperature to 355˚F (180˚C). Press Start.
  • Turn the empanadas over and bake again for an additional 12 minutes.
