Plantains are related to bananas, but tend to be firmer and lower in sugar content then their dessert cousins. And unlike bananas, Plantains don’t taste very good raw, and require cooking, usually while they are green or under ripe.
They don’t always look very nice, but they taste delicious and are highly addictive when baked into yummy, crispy chips.
What you’ll need:
1 unripe Plantain
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Peel the plantain with a knife and thinly slice.
In a bowl, toss chips with olive oil, salt and cayenne pepper until well mixed.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place chips in a single layer.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, flipping once halfway through at about 8 minutes.
I dare you to make these and not eat the whole bowl!
Makes about 2 servings.
