Easy Plantain Chips Recipe

Baked plantain chips
Fried plantain Chips
I make these for lunch,dinner,as a snack all the time. Actually I made them for two weeks(maybe 3) straight because I dint feel like cooking those nights. You make think Snacks when you hear plantain chips. But that is not all true. When you make them at home, it can be a meal. All you need is a bout two plantains for one serving. I call it "Vegan night" when I make these plantain chips. I usually pair them with a side of guacamole or garlic sauce. 

What you Need:

  • 2 Plantains
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

If you want lime or garlic flavor,just add some lime juice or organic garlic powder to the mix and voila!
You can even add some red pepper/paprika/dry basil for more flavor.

  • Preheat oven to  400 degrees F. (I suggest baking during the cooler months and frying with olive oil during summertime) 
  • Peel the plantain with a sharp knife.Cut into very thin slices
  • In a bowl, combine plantain slices, olive oil, and salt.(Add seasonings if you're making lime,garlic,etc..)
  • Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet(You can use aluminum,but I find that parchment paper works best)
  •  Place cookie sheet in oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Plantain chips are done when they start to brown around the edges.
Frying option:
  • Heat up a pan to medium heat with olive oil, add just enough plantains slices when hot.Fry for about 3-5 minutes. And repeat process based on the amount being made. Fried plantains are my favorite. So much crispier and tastier.
