Baked Plantain Fries

How many of your kids would not love this recipe from Vaishali from the Holy Cow Vegan blog?

These crunchy, golden baked plantain fries are a great option to potato fries. Spicing them very lightly with turmeric and ground black pepper allows their natural deliciousness to shine through. You can also make these fat-free.


Course: Side Servings: 4 servings

  • 2 green or raw plantains, peeled and cut into sticks, like fries*

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt or pink salt

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (olive, coconut, avocado are all fine here) (To make these fat-free, toss with 2 tbsp vegetable stock instead of oil. Your fries won't be as golden but will be delicious).


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  • Place the plantain fries in a large bowl. Toss with the remaining ingredients.

  • Place the fries on a baking sheet, making sure they do not overlap.

  • Bake for 20 minutes, turning the chips over once halfway through baking.

  • Remove and serve hot. I serve these with some magic cheesy sauce and a sprinkling of chopped coriander leaves.


*To prep the plantains, cut off both ends with a paring knife, then cut the plantains into three pieces. Run the paring knife once down the length of piece, making a cut deep enough to go through the skin but not the flesh. Grab a corner of the plantain skin with your fingers, and peel.
