Roasted Sweet Plantains
from: sarah_jayne

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.

SERVES 4

  • 4 plantains, in their skins

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.
