With the green ones you can make tostones (fried plantains). You slice the plantain at an angle and fry those for a bit, then you take them out and flatten them, and fry some more until a little crisp. Then you make a paste with garlic, oil and salt and mix it with the fried plantains. If you like garlic you'll like this.
