Baked Sweet Plantains




  • 6 yellow plantains (skins on and uniform in size)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Without peeling or cutting the plantain in half, cut a slit lengthwise down the plantain.
  3. Wrap the plantains in tinfoil.
  4. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. The plantains should be soft, but not mushy.
  5. Let the plantains cool slightly then peel off the skin.
  6. Arrange the cooked plantains on a serving platter. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  7. Serve hot.
  8. Add some shredded cheddar or grated Parmesan Cheese on top for a little added POP
