Plantains are related to bananas. They’re starchy, but not as sweet as bananas, which makes them perfect for frying.
Fried foods may not seem very Paleo-friendly, but we’re not talking about using a deep-frier full of rancid vegetable oil.
By simply throwing some thinly sliced plantains on a skillet with a healthy fat of your choice, you can fry them up and enjoy a crispy snack, guilt-free.
Plantains can be a little tougher to work with when compared to bananas.
They don’t peel as easily, but you can coax them out with warm water and a sharp knife.
Once you’ve accomplished that all you have to do is slice and cook the plantains, which will take you no time at all.
Variation: Plantain Chips
Alternatively, you can use a sharp knife, or mandoline, and slice the plantains crosswise into 1/8-inch thick chips. Melt some ghee, coconut oil or your preferred choice of fat in a skillet and fry them up!
