Savory and Sweet Plantain Chips

Savory and Sweet Plantain Chips

The kids at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls are back at school. You know what that means? They’re hungry!

In this 3-part series of “Noshing with Nyah,” co-worker Nyah creates after school snacks perfect for munching while doing homework! In this first video, she makes plantain chips two ways;  Savory and Sweet. Recipes below!

Savory Plantain Chips

Ingredients:
2 Green Plantains
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 tsp Oregano
2 tsp Curry Powder
3 tsp Smoked Paprika

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice plantains and place in mixing bowl. Mix all ingredients together, pour over raw plantains. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 14-18 minutes, checking after 12 minutes. You may not be able to fit all the plantains on one baking sheet, so you can bake these in 2 separate batches.

Sweet Plantain Chips
