I made a whole Cuban meal tonight. Real Cuban chefs would roll their eyes at my pathetic attempts. One must have is plantains. Usually they are fried but the smoke detectors (and small, sleeping child) in my house prevent me from doing so. I attempted to bake them instead. Turned out pretty well. I also learned the secret to plantains is to let them get ripe enough to be dark yellow with black spots.


-Ripe plantains (see above)

-Olive oil cooking spray



Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut the ends off the plantains and CAREFULLY slice each one length wise to cut the skin but not cut into the fruit. Peal and cut on the diagonal 1 inch thick chips. Spray a non-stick cookie sheet with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Put the chips on the tray, spray with the olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Bake 7-10 minutes. Flip. Bake 7-10 minutes. Serve with smoked pork and black beans and rice.



— Thanks.
