Food

I've been eating plantains my entire life. I didn't want to give them up, so years ago I tried cooking them on the grill instead of the traditional methods of frying. I was hooked. Then winter came along, so I popped them in the oven. Just as delicious! There's no need to stop eating your favourite foods. Just modify how you cook/bake them. Watch me make this very simple but delicious dish here.

Baked Plantain

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

30 minutes

Category: Side

6-8

1/4 to 1/2 a plantain

Baked Plantain

Ingredients

  • 3-4 medium ripe plantains
  • 1-2 tbsp cooking oil/coconut oil or omit if using a good nonstick baking sheet
  • salt & pepper to taste or omit. (Most of the item I do not use any seasoning at all.)

Instructions

  1. Remove the skin from your plantains. I wash the plantain first.
  2. Cut into even disc shapes or lengthwise.
  3. In a bowl or right on the baking sheet, add oil & seasonings. Toss until coated.
  4. Bake in preheated oven of 350°F/176°C for 20-25 minutes. Turning halfway in between for even browning.
  5. Serve hot or warm, as a side or enjoy on it's own.

Notes

This is also amazing on the grill. Just make sure your grill is well oiled so the plantain does not stick.

These do take a little longer than the waffles you can make from a box, but they are so worth it! Crispy, filling & you know what is going into your food. Give these a try & you'll never go back to the boxed or freezer section waffle again! Watch me make them here.

Waffles, Plain & Blueberry

Category: Breakfast

16 depending on your waffle iron

Waffles, Plain & Blueberry

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup milk or milk substitute, at room temperature
  • 4 tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 egg whites, beaten to a soft peak, at room temperature

Instructions

  1. Mix dry ingredients well. Set aside.
  2. Beat egg yolks in a bowl.
  3. Stir in milk & butter/oil, until blended.
  4. Beat egg whites by hand or with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Check out the video if you are unsure as to how the egg whites should look.
  5. Fold in the egg whites, in 2 parts. Half of the egg whites, then the other half. Do not beat. You want to keep the batter light.
  6. In preheated waffle iron, cook the waffles according to the makers directions.
  7. Serve hot, with maple syrup, or fruit.

Notes

These waffles freeze well. Cook according to waffle iron directions. Cool completely. Wrap well and freeze. They should be good in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Place in toaster or toaster oven from frozen, until heated through.

You can add the blueberries to the batter before or after adding it to the waffle iron.
