Plantains are a good source for a quick and fan snack option.

Plantain are like bananas only they are still green and used for cooking. I love to substitute and found that, what I can do with a potato I can do with plantain.  Here is how to make simple and delicious plantain snacks. I chose to make Round Bites and Plantain Chips.

Round Plantain Bites

  • Two plantains, peeled and cut into on inch pieces.
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • pinch of chilli powder ( optional)

 

 

 

 

 

Method:

  1. In a skillet, heat oil.
  2. Place pieces, round side down, cook for about 2 min each side, until slightly yellow.
  3. When done, place pieces on a plate and with bottom of another plate, squeeze each piece flat into a coin shaped snack.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
