Quick Fact/Recipe of the Rotation

7 Reasons to Add Plantains to Your Diet

 

 

Studies show both bananas and plantains help boost the immune system, regulate digestion and are potassium-rich foods. But the benefits of plantains don’t stop there, which is why you can’t go wrong with this banana doppelgänger.
Plantains are the 10th most important staple food feeding the world today.
Health Benefits of Plantains:
  • Great source of Potassium
  • Help Regulate the Digestive System
  • Reduce the Number of Harmful Free Radicals
  • Boos the Immune System
  • Promote Healthy Brain Function
  • Great Source of Magnesium
  • Prevent Aspirin-Induced Ulcers
Green plantains: When plantains are green, the pulp is fairly hard and sometimes the peel must be removed with a knife. At this stage, they are starchy and not very sweet, similar to a potato. This is the best time to make plantain chips.
Yellow plantains: Slightly sweeter than green plantains, yellow plantains are mature and most often made into fried plantains. They’re best fried, cooked, boiled or grilled.
Black plantains: Despite their color, black plantains are still good to eat. They are the sweetest and softest at this point and are typically baked and eaten as a dessert.

Healthy Bake Plantain Chips
 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 green plantains
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar or no calorie sugar substitute (granular not liquid)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel the plantain with a sharp knife. Then slice the plantains as thinly as possible with a mandolin or knife.
  3. In a bowl, combine plantain slices, olive oil, and seasonings. Stir gently to coat the plantain chips.
  4. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Place a single layer of plantains on the parchment paper.
  5. Place cookie sheet in oven for 16 to 20 minutes. Turn plantains after 8 minutes.
  6. Plantain chips are done when they start to brown around the edges. Remove from oven and serve.
  7. Chips are best served warm. You can also cool the plantain chips on a baking rack lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil, and serve them at room temperature, too. Plantain chips keep for about one day.
