Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mats. Cut off both ends of the plantains. Make a cut along the entire length of a plantain, and peel off the skin. Slice each plantain into thin slices. Dont worry if the slices are not perfect. Place the plantains in a medium-sized bowl. Mix in all the other ingredients and stir until everything is well incorporated. Place the plantain slices on the baking sheets in a single layer. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, flipping them at about the 8- or 9-minute mark. Because of the uneven heat distribution in my oven, I also like to swap the baking sheets between the top and bottom racks. Remove the chips from the oven when the edges turn into a nice golden brown color.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Cooking Tips

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • If you've never cooked with plantains before, it is important to make sure you buy them ripe. Unripe plains are green. Instead, you will want to look for yellow plantains with brown spots or even a nearly black plantain for a sweet-tasting fruit.
