Green Plantains

Plantains are a type of fruit that belong to the same family as bananas, but are larger and starchier. While they may look similar to bananas, plantains have a different taste and texture that sets them apart.

The taste of plantains changes as they ripen. Green and unripe plantains have a mild, starchy flavor, while ripe plantains are sweeter and have a more complex taste that is often compared to that of a sweet potato or squash. Plantains have a firm texture and they maintain a slightly chewy consistency even when cooked.

Overall, Plantains are a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from savory to sweet. They are commonly used in Latin American, Caribbean, and African cuisines, and can be boiled, fried, or baked. In addition to their delicious flavor, plantains also provide a range of nutrients, including fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C.

We take pride in providing organic produce that is free from harmful chemicals, herbicides, or pesticides. Our produce is carefully hand-picked and packed on the same day of delivery to ensure optimal freshness, flavor, and nutritional value.

Uses

Plantains are a delicious and nutritious food that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Whether boiled, baked, or fried, plantains are a great way to add flavor and nutrition to any meal.

Nutritional Info

Green Plantains are a nutrient-dense fruit that provides a variety of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. As you can see, plantains are a good source of carbohydrates, fiber, and potassium. They also provide vitamin A, vitamin C, and magnesium. Plantains are low in fat and sodium, making them a healthy addition to a balanced diet.

It’s important to note that the nutritional content of plantains can vary depending on their ripeness and how they are prepared. For instance, green plantains have higher starch and lower sugar content than ripe plantains, and as a result, may have a different nutrient profile. It’s also worth noting that certain methods of preparation, such as frying, can significantly increase the fat and calorie content of plantains. Therefore, boiled or baked plantains are a healthier option.

How to store

Plantains can be stored at room temperature for several days or up to a week, depending on their ripeness. To extend their shelf life, you can store them in a cool, dark place, such as a pantry or cupboard, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

  2. Peel and thinly slice the plantains.
  3. In a bowl, toss the plantain slices with a drizzle of olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange the plantain slices in a single layer, making sure they are not stacked on top of each other.
  5. Bake the plantain chips for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  6. Once the plantain chips are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
