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.
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.
