Plantains are used a lot in Belizean cuisine as a snack or side to most meals with fish, chicken or rice. A plantain looks like a large banana but if you taste one you can definitely tell the difference. They are a lot larger than a banana and harder to peel. However, they are healthy and delicious.
Here’s a recipe for healthy plantain dish:
- 4-6 yellow ripe plantains with black spots.
- Coconut oil
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Grease sheet pan with coconut oil.
Cut the ends off of the plantains and peel.
Cut each plantain on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices.
Arrange in single layer and brush the tops with coconut oil.
Bake, turning occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, until plantains are golden brown and very tender
