Loved this recipe! I had bought a bunch of plaintains for another, more time-consuming recipe,but didn't have time to make it. Saw this one and figured why not. I even introduced someone to plaintains with this, and they ate most of the dish. The only addition I made was to add a tbs. of melted guava jelly to half of the pan (the other half got eaten immediately by DH). Either way, they were very good. Nice and easy, too.
I never tried plantains before this recipe and didn't know what to expect. I loved them! Very sweet and they were a hit with other family members. Make sure your plantains are fully ripe and yellow, though. I cooked one that had a little green spot and those pieces definitely weren't as tender as the rest.
These little morsels were incredible Sue. I enjoyed them so much. I let them roast for 40 minutes. The orange juice, sugar and cinnamon glazed the plantains perfectly. What a taste treat. I love plantains and am always looking for new ways to cook them. Thank you so much for sharing this treat. :)
Was going to make only half a recipe, but changed my mind & went 'whole hog' & am so glad I did ~ These are SO TASTY! I did add a couple of things, though ~ a couple of teaspoons of orange zest along with the OJ, & when they came out of the oven, I topped half of them with some homemade hot fudge just 'cause I liked the idea of chocolate & orange & plantain! Both versions were great! [Made & reviewed while on tour in South & Central America with the Zaar World Tour 4]
I wasn't impressed :[
oooh i reallllly enjoyed these! the flavors of the orange juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon went so well with the plantains! but i must say the smell coming out of the oven was driving us nuts!!! soooo good! thank u so much for making me love plantains!!! :D!! made for zwt4
WOWEE! These are FANTASTIC! The fresh OJ soaks into the plantains and the brown sugar and cinnamon are the perfect compliment. This is my new favorite way to make plantains. Made for the ZWT4.
I prepared half the recipe for my small family and I was happy with the way they turned out. Made for ZWT4.
These were good, but a little too sweet for me. I cut back on the recipe and would recommend that when cutting back, use a smaller dish so that the plantains can soak in the juice. Made and reviewed for ZWT4.
This was pretty good. They actually tasted more like oranges than anything because of all the orange juice! I've never had plantains before, and this was a nice introduction.
