Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 ripe plantain
    1 cup low fat plain Greek Yogurt
    2 tsp virgin coconut oil
    1 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup

Directions

1. Place plantain on cutting board and use a sharp knife to slice off both ends. Use the knife to make a cut all the way down the inside of the plantain; cut the skin just deeply enough to reach the flesh, but not so deep that you slice the flesh. Gently pull off and discard the peel. Cut the plantqain into 1/4 inch thick rounds.

2. Divide the yogurt into four small serving bowls. Set aside in the fridge to keep it cool.

3. In a large, cast iron skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the plantain sllices and cook until browned,
about 1 minute. Turn and cook for 30 seconds, until beginning to brown on the underside. Drizzle the maple syrup over the plantains and cook until carmaelized and syrupy, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and immediately divide the plantains among the four dishes, spooning some syrup over each serving. Enjoy.
