    Hmm I haven’t overly liked any plantain chips that I’ve had but I’m willing to be convinced! 😉 I’m going to email you about my trip now!

    What a great idea! I love plantains. I remember hearing about them for the first time on Sesame Street or the Electric Company. They were doing a little video about a girl whose family came from South America and the things they ate at home. I was so enamored with the idea of eating fried bananas, and I thought about them for years after that. I didn’t get to try them for myself until adulthood or learn to cook them for myself (successfully) until a few years ago. I tend to shallow fry them or roast them with walnuts and brown sugar. I like your chip idea. Must try!

    (Your line about Americans and the metric system cracked me up.)

    You make me wish for plantains to appear in my local shop (though I already have a few well intentioned purchases in the vegie crisper waiting for some inspiration so who am I kidding!)

    I looooove making these! They are great on Mexican pizzas with avocado. 🙂

    You can do the same thing with bananas too. That’s good on ice cream. And the recipe I posted Friday.

    Is there anything that’s NOT good roasted?!

    I adore plantain, I had it bbq’ed last week and it was awesome. I’ve never had it as chips before, have to try this!

    Those look amazing and delicious and so summery!! Love paprika!

    Oh this is one of my absolute favorite things to eat! I really need to try making these on my own – thanks for the inspiration!

    Great tip. I have been enjoying some store bought Veggie Chips lately. What’s to stop me from just making my own?! Beside the laziness thing.

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I have long been intrigued by plantains and now I am not only intrigued but actively want them. I know I would love these!

    These are like the banana chips mum gets from the Indian store but much tastier cause they are fresh from home 😀

    Ha you got the taste and texture of plantain chips down pat. I still find them starchy in that ‘raw banana’ kinda way but maybe if you promised cinnamon I’d give them a go 🙂

    Hi! Hi hi hi! A tiny bit of free time so catching up on you! I love plantains, and keep trying to convince Andy we should grow them. I have only ever deep fried them, but this option looks so much easier and equally delicious. Will have to get some from the markets next weekend and try!

    I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying a final fling of summer – long may it last. Ahhh Miley – what can we say. Perhaps she needs some time in a nunnery. I have never cooked with plantains either and I’m not sure I’ve even seen them in the shops. Maybe I just haven’t been observant. These ‘chips’ do look very addictive xx

    I’ve never even bought plantains because they don’t look very inviting? They do have to be cooked don’t they. I’d rather just enjoy my lovely Lady Finger bananas – a bit boring for you, I guess, but just right for an unadventurous Grandma.

    You are always opening my eyes to things I would have never thought of! I wish I could reach into the screen and pick one up to try 😛

    Ooooh yummy!! My Columbian friend was the one that introduced me to plantain for the first time a few months ago actually. Hooked on them after that. Glad she told me where I can buy plantains gotta make these babies too ;p

  17. Jo

    Yummmm! I love oven-roasted veg! If only we could get plantains in melb! Havent seen any around!

    I LOVE PLANTAIN. This is what we lived on in Ghana – roasted, fried, boiled. Called kelewele when you buy it from the mammies on the street. It’s good to add ginger and chilli pepper too. We had our favourite lady on the corner. Oh I miss Accra street food! Xcat

  19. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    I used to be obsessed with those plantain chips they sell at bulk barn so naturally I need to try this. If I had known it could be this easy, I would have been making plantain chips all along!

  20. hungryandfrozen

    Ohhhh, it has been forever since I’ve had plantains. I miss them! Def going to try this next time I see them for some neighbour-waking snacking times. Also, catty-corner is just the cutest way of describing something.

  21. Heathy

    Yummm, I want plantains! I used to eat plantain chips whenever I could get my hands on them – dont eat them anymore but I love the idea of roasting them in the oven. Mmm, so sweet. They served roasted ones daily in the Bahamas so I got a good share 😉

    I LOVE plantain chips. 🙂 My boyfriend’s mom taught me how to make mangú (traditional Dominican dish with plantains), but I’ve been yearning for some tasty chips. I see them in the supermarket with lime, and now I’m excited to make them at home.

    Thanks for sharing! I found your recipe via Healthy Vegan Friday.
