Recipe: The Paleo Mom’s Plantain Lasagna (Pastelon)

By admin | In Recipes | on March 4, 2014

I only get to say it this year, happy birthday to my loving fiance, Nick! For a long time, Nick was a 7p regular, but since he went back to school, he’s been dropping into the 6p classes. Nick has been through many phases at Intrepid. He started as a regular in CrossFit, then dabbed in Marcus’s original powerlifting club which included pushing his car up and down the alley next to the old location. He also manged three months of Marcus’s revived powerlifting club before school got busy and put on an impressive 20 lbs and added serious gains to his back squat.

I have many reasons to be thankful that Nick is in my life. Starting with all of you at Intrepid. Nick was the one who originally introduced me to CrossFit back when I thought “CrossFit was dumb.” Obviously he proved me wrong, and I couldn’t be happier that he did. He is also the hardest working person I know and constantly pushes those around him to be better, more productive and focused versions of themselves. Even though he has left SpaceX, he continues to mentor old employees and coworkers, all while balancing a new job and his full time MBA program. Beebs, we’ve had an exciting 4 years, we spent days, nights and weekends building rockets and space capsules together, and docked the first commercial spacecraft with the Space Station, but somehow I’m thinking 27 is going to be the best year yet! I love you and Happy Birthday! – Holley
Oldie, but a goodie with CF buddies

Oldie, but a goodie with CF buddies

When Nick (birthday boy) told me about this Puerto Rican recipe years ago, I was incredulous, then skeptical, and then so incredibly grateful after I tried it. Lasagna, but with plantains instead of pasta?! Filled with meat?!! The Paleo Mom posted this paleo version (no cheese) and I’m looking forward to trying this.   It’s very straightforward, doesn’t require lots of prep time, and is incredibly filling.  The hardest part is waiting for your 6 plantains to ripen.

Here’s the ingredient list to start you off, but click here for the full recipe:


She also recently posted a nightshade free curry version of this which is also on my to do list.
