Hello there! I’ve got another video for you all today. This is my second collab with thefatkidinside.com and I’ll be showing you how to make a great little snack – plantain chips! If you bake these right, they turn out just as crunchy as your regular packet of chips. So now you really don’t have an excuse to eat junk when you have such an amazing alternative!
I’ve seasoned the plantains with curry powder and some paprika for some fire. You can, of course, be creative and use whatever spices you wish. I think lime & black pepper would taste delicious (ok now I’ve said that I feel like I NEED to make it). If you have a sweet tooth you could go for honey and cinnamon. The combinations are endless! One important thing: make sure you use green plantains. The ones that are more ripe tend to be too soft and don’t bake as well. They do yield sweeter chips though.
Hope you like them!
- 3 plantains (green)
- 2 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- sea salt
- coconut oil
- Heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
- Peel the plantains by cutting off both ends. Then, using a paring knife, score the plantain lengthwise and use your fingers to pry the skin off. Cut them into even slices, about 2mm thick.
- Place the plantains in a bowl and drizzle with a little bit of coconut oil. Make sure none of the pieces are stuck together!
- In a separate bowl, mix the spices and the salt with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
- Pour the mixture over the plantains and make sure they are coated evenly.
- Place the plantains on a baking tray with non stick paper. Bake them in the oven for 16 minutes, taking them out half way through to flip them over.
