Servings: 6


  • 4 ripe, bright yellow plantains
  • 1½ cups of organic, cold pressed, virgin, unrefined, non-GMO avocado or coconut oil

Step 1

Wash the plantains and use a sharp knife to peel open the plantains.

Step 2

One by one, slice each plantain in a crosswise manner, into a medium-sized bowl.

Step 3

Heat up avocado oil or coconut oil in a deep fryer for 3 minutes.

Step 4

Place 10 to 12 plantain slices at a time, turning them every 2 to 3 minutes until they are lightly brown on both sides.

Step 5

Transfer the fried plantains with a sieve onto a paper towel, to absorb the extra oil. Then transfer to a flat dish.

Step 6

Serve with cooked beans or lentils, vegetable stew, jollof rice, soaked cassava flour known as "garri", or simply eat alone as a side dish!
