Can't seem to get plantain from sainsburys online, for some reason, even though I live in central London. Recipe is Caribbean Veg Hotpot.

Nothing tastes like plantain my lovely. What about parsnips? They are lovely and sweet. If you lived close I'd let you have the plantain in my kitchen.

Good. I had to think about it for a while. Hope it works out. Don't you have a handy little sells everything shop nearby?
