    1. 1
      Select very yellow ripe plantains, some black spots should be visible. Cut Ends off plantains and peel remaining shin off. It should peel almost like a banana. Slice diagonally in a slanted cut pattern about 1 inch or a little thicker. Sprinkle generous amounts of ginger, garlic and red pepper if you like some spice. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Arrange on baking sheet and bake in preheated oven at 450 degrees. Turn plantains occasionally until both sides have a nice golden top about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
    2. 2
      you can also use fresh ginger 1 tablespoon, 4 cloves garlic and 1 small habenero pepper and a dash salt prepared in food processor with tablespoon olive oil. Let plantains marinate in mixture for hour than arrange on cookie sheet and bake or fry in oil until golden brown.

      These are a quick and healthy way to make plantains. I like Kerfufle's idea to squeeze lemon or lime on them. I, also, sliced them thinly.

      This was quick and easy. Next time I'm going to use non stick foil and spray it before putting the plantains on. I only sprayed & sprayed thoroughly with oil, but the pieces were sticking to the foil like mad. I like the taste and it is a healthy way to prepare plantains. Thank you

      Savory and delicious with a squeeze of lemon, or lime, to tone down the bite of the cayenne pepper! I sliced the plantains about 3/8", thinner than specified in the recipe, and roasted them at 425F for 15 minutes, turning them once! Recipe made for tagging a chef beginning with the letter M in the Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup game in Cooking with Friends ~
