baked plantain

Learn how to prepare your sweet ripe plantains in the oven. A much more healthier alternative to frying them on the stove top. Lightly seasoned with warming spices for additional flavour.




  1. Preheat oven 180 degrees celsius or gas mark 4.
  2. Use a paring knife to remove the skin from the plantain(s). The easiest way to do that is to cut each end and run the knife less than an inch length ways, so you’re left with a horizontal line, peel back the skin and discard.
  3. Now cut the plantain(s) into diagonal shaped discs and brush each side with some oil.
  4. Arrange the discs on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in the oven for roughly 30 minutes until slightly brown or golden. Don’t forget to turn over half way through.
  6. Once cooked remove from oven and serve accordingly.
