From Fatfree.com, posted by Jayne Spielman who credits this recipe to a 1998 NY Times article which adapted it from "Uncommon Fruits and Vegetables" by Elizabeth Schneider. Is that credit or what? Unusual but tasty and no fat.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Trim ends from plantains and cut a slit lengthwise along the plantain.
  3. Arrange with slit side up and bake on a pan or cookie sheet for 30-40 minutes or until they are creamy and soft.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool until you can remove the peels.
  5. Slice into 1/2-inch rounds (or do on diagonal for something a little more interesting) and put in a pie pan or something you can put back in the oven.
  6. Sprinkle with lime juice, chili powder, and salt and mix gently.
  7. Put back into oven to warm up and help some of the flavors meld.
