In a heavy bottomed Dutch oven or large saucepan, heat the oil and then add the diced onion, garlic, carrots and celery. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often for several minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Peel and quarter the plaintains lengthwise and then slice them thinly. Add to the hot broth mixture along with the cilantro, cumin, pepper and salt.
