• 2-3 green plantains
  • Olive Oil
  • Freshly diced chives (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Slice ends off each plantain
Slice just through the outer skin lengthwise down each plantain
Under cold running water peel away outer skin (this requires a little work)
After skin is removed pat dry and slice into 3/4 inch round pieces

In a saute pan heat enough oil to cover the entire bottom of the pan
Heat oil over medium-high heat
Once oil is hot, add plantain pieces one by one and cook for 2-3 minutes on one side or until starting to brown. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Remove pieces from oil and place on paper towel and allow to cool for about a minute. While you are allowing plantain pieces to cool, keep stove and oil on low heat.

When you can handle plantain pieces, gently press each one with the back of a wooden spoon to flatten. After all pieces are flattened, raise stove back to medium heat and add pieces back to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes per side (or until golden brown.)

Remove and place on paper towel. Add salt and pepper to taste and optional diced chives.

You can also serve with a garlic or sour cream dip.
