I first had plantains when I moved to the UK and to an area that has a large Caribbean and Nigerian population. They are yummy and sort of like a banana but not exactly as they need to be cooked. This is a really easy way of trying out plantains without being afraid of what to do with them. You don't really need the cooking spray but it wouldn't let me post a recipe with just one ingredient.
- 4 plantains, in their skins
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Place the plantains in their skins on a baking sheet or in a roasting pan and allow to roast for 20-25 minutes, or until soft but not mushy.
- Remove from the oven, split the skins and serve immediately.
