Ingredients

2 plantains (cooking banana) 440 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 1/4 tsp turmeric 4 g
1 tsp dried oregano 1 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.1 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
parchment paper

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the plantains easier.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Line one or two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cut off both ends of each plantain, then slit the skin lengthwise with a sharp knife. Peel off the skin carefully, without damaging the flesh. Slice the plantains into thin rounds.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the oil, with turmeric, oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the rounds and coat them well with the mixture. Transfer them to the baking sheet. Don't crowd the pieces on the sheet or they will steam and not turn golden-brown.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven 10-12 min, then mix and bake an additional 10-12 min.
  5. Serve.
