Healthy Baked Plantain Chips With Garlic Sauce

JuanMontalvo's picture
Plantain chips are enjoyed throughout the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Traditionally, the chips are deep fried. But you know me… I DEEP FRY NOTHING ! You can still achieve the same chip crispiness by baking them with just a little oil spray. You can either slice them in a mandolin lengthwise or cross cut, and achieve the same results. I think lengthwise just looks fancier and makes for a better presentation. I like to serve mine with garlic sauce made with Naranja Agria (better orange).
Ingredients
  Green plantains 2 , peeled and thinly sliced
  Olive oil spray 1
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm), finely chopped
  Sour orange/2 parts lemon to 1 part orange juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Naranja Agria)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat baking sheet with nonstick olive oil spray. Arrange plantain in a single layer on the prepared baking dish. Spray the top of the plantains lightly with olive oil spray. Season with salt.

Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

In the mean time, mix garlic, Naranja Agria or (substitute 2 parts lemon to 1 part orange juice), and salt & pepper.

Makes approximately 1 cup
