  • 2 plantains large
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  • Cut off both ends of the plantain then run your knife through the flesh of the plantain creating a cut from the top to the bottom - Try not to cut too deep into the flesh, you just want to cut through the skin.
  • Using a mandoline slicer, slice plantains into long, thin stripes. If the plantain is too long, divide it into two before slicing it.
  • In a large bowl, coat plantain slices with Olive Oil and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Bake in a 375º F for 20-25 minutes until browned on the edges and crispy.


  1. You can make plantain crisps 2 days ahead and keep in an airtight container at room temperature.
  2. You can use a knife or a mandoline or a knife to thinly slice the plantains. However, a mandoline gives you a more uniform slice and it's also faster.
  3. Don't over bake them. As soon as they turn golden and crunchy take them out from the oven. The longer they are left in the oven, the more they lose their color and taste.
