Baked Plantain Recipe



Bake Plantain Recipe


Baking plantain instead of frying can cut loads of calories by cutting out unnecessary fat from excess oil used in frying. Plantain alone is very nutritious providing high amounts of nutrients such as potassium, fiber, vit A, Vit C, and Vit B6. Consumption of unripe green plantain is actually advised for people with diabetes to help control blood sugar. But these nutritional characteristics of plantain can be negated when plantain are fried in excess oil. Also, one should keep in mind that 1 medium sized plantain has around 200 calories. So the serving consumed by one person at one time, should be no more than 2 whole plantains depending on what it is being paired with.


What you will need

  • 2 yellow plantain (greener for more chip like plantain, more ripe for sweet soft plantain)
  • Olive oil
  • oil spray
  • Salt 
  • A baking pan
  • Aluminum foil


Steps

  1. Cut plantain diagonally or horizontally. Which ever you prefer is fine. The thinner the slice the more chip like the plantain will turn out.
  2. Place plantain in large bowl and coat with 1-2 tablespoons of oil. 
  3. Add a few pinches of salt
  4. Toss plantain around in bowl to evenly coat with oil and salt
  5. Pre-heat oven to 400 F (204 C)
  6. Foil baking pan and spray with cooking spray
  7. Once oven is preheated baked plantain 15-20 minutes watching for golden brown color
  8. Turn plantain and let bake another 10 minutes
  9. Take plantain out when golden brown and serve with eggs for breakfast, or rice and stew for lunch or dinner, or just enjoy as a snack
  10. I paired my last batch with fried egg whites, chopped tomato, and onion, seasoned with curry, red pepper, and salt!
