Good morning, loves!
Today I have a recipe for you!
Today’s recipe is a recipe for my favourite type of fry, plantain fries!
I’ve tried many different types of fries before…
Everything from white potato to sweet potato and parsnip to carrot, but plantain fries definitely win my heart. They are simply the best type of fry!
Lori and Michelle inspired me to make my first batch of plantain fries as they are most definitely the plantain queens and ever since my first experience with plantains, I’ve been hooked! And I think I got my fiancé, Eddie, hooked on them this morning, too
Both Eddie and myself had plantain fries for breakfast this morning, but my Mom and Dad also had some bites, too! Everyone loved them!
My Mom thought they tasted just like a regular white potato fry and Eddie described them to be “cakey”.
The texture of plantains is definitely unique and I love it. It’s very dense and satisfying, so if you have yet to experiment with plantains, I highly suggest you try out my recipe for plantain fries or try one of the many recipes using plantains created by Lori and Michelle!
1 green plantain (I choose the green ones because they are not sweet and perfect for savoury recipes such as these fries!)
1 tbsp coconut oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Peel plantain and cut into fries.
Melt coconut oil and toss fries in melted oil.
Place fries on a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 – 20 minutes (or until golden brown on the edges).
Remove from oven and serve immediately.
This recipe is very simple and quick, so I often cook my fries in the oven as I fry my eggs or prepare the rest of my breakfast.
