How to grill plantains in an oven! This is a very simple and healthy technique of cooking plantains. Grilled plantains made the perfect side dish for barbecues. Sometimes I just enjoy them with avocado. They are so good!

  • 4 ripe plantains
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I used canola)
  1. 1. Set oven to grill/broil then brush a grill pan or regular oven tray with oil.

  2. 2. Peel plantains then cut through each plantain in the middle from top to bottom. Place the plantains, cut side down on the tray. Place in the oven and let it grill for 20 minutes. Now, halfway through, you may flip the sides of the plantain. However, if your plantains are too soft, you won't be able to flip them so leave them as they are.

  3. 3. Serve warm with any side of choice! Options include, grilled meat, chicken or fish, guacamole or even pepper sauce! Enjoy!
