Can I cook beans with plantain?
I am a 40 year old house wife. I read somewhere that cooking beans and ripe plantain together is dangerous. Is this true as I have been eating beans and plantain cooked together for the past 30 years without any problem.

Beans and plantain porridge, a meal made up of ripe plantains and beans is a very popular meal in the African society. When made with fresh ingredients including fish, tomatoes, shrimps and onions among other ingredients, the meal is a balanced diet and a very good source of nutrition. Apart from those who may be allergic to some of the ingredients used in preparing the meal, cooking beans together with ripe plantain is very healthy and absolutely safe.
