  • I recently picked up a plantain in the grocery store & once it turned almost black I tried this recipe. I sliced it in about 16 pieces, fried it in organic Earth Balance (vegan) and put cinnamon on them after they were browned on both sides. I did not add additional sweetener and they were perfect! - 6/24/13

  • This was awesome. I fried them up in my fake butter, put some cinnamon on them, them sprinkled them with Splenda once they were plated. They were delicious and very filling. - 5/16/11

  • If you want the fried plantain to be sweet, wait until it is very ripe (the peel of the plantain will be almost black). If you cook it when it is very green, it will taste starchy instead of sweet. - 7/6/10
