Last weekend I decided it was time for some more chips, so I purchased several plantains, grabbed my trusty mandolin, and got to work! These chips are super crispy, just salty enough, and only use three ingredients. They're also 1,000 times (maybe I'm exaggerating...) healthier than regular chips, so you don't have to feel bad while enjoying them.
I decided to make chips out of 5 plantains so we'd have some for a while. By the end of the cooking process, we only had 4 plantains-worth left. :)
Tip - use plantains that are more green than ripe - they hold up better during the slicing/flipping stage!
1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
Using a mandolin, thinly slice each plantain. (Be careful of your fingers!) Transfer sliced plantains to a bowl and cover with 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil.
Lay plantain chips in a single layer on a Silpat mat. Sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until edges brown, flipping plantain chips over halfway through. If your plantains are thicker, they will take longer to bake.
