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.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potato (White Flesh Variety)

Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow flesh sweet potato, washed & peeled or not
  • 1-2 tbsp of grapeseed/coconut/vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion granules/powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric

  2. Spread oil on a prepared baking sheet & set it aside.
  3. Cut your sweet potato into equal pieces. About 1.5 inches.
  4. In a bowl or on the same baking sheet, add all of the spices & mix, making sure that the sweet potato pieces are covered well.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until tender and browned. Times may vary by your oven.
  6. Halfway through the baking flip the sweet potato pieces.

If you refrigerate the cooked sweet potatoes reheat them in the oven for best results. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C and heat for 10-12 minutes.
