How to Prepare Sweet Spiced Plantain Pie.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
Place the plantain, sugar, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, eggs, butter and milk into a food processor and blitz until smooth.
Roll out the pastry and place it into a 9 inch/23cm diameter solid pie plate.
Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/350°F.
Pour the filling into your pastry case and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Remove the pie from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
Serve warm or chilled. Goes nicely with mildly sweetened whipped cream or roasted cashew nuts.
