Baked Plantains   Leave a comment

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:

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 yellow ripe plantains with black spots.
  • Coconut oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F.

  1. Grease sheet pan with coconut oil.
  2. Cut the ends off of the plantains and peel.
  3. Cut each plantain on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices.
  4. Arrange in single layer and brush the tops with coconut oil.
  5. Bake, turning occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, until plantains are golden brown and very tender
