Jerk-style Plantain Fries

prep time:10 min
cook time:5 min
ready in:15 min
  • 1 large green plantain
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme
  • 1/2 tsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Peel the plantain (greens ones do not peel easily like bananas. I like to cut off the top and bottom then lightly score it down the side and peel it back).
  • Cut width-ways into rounds about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Mix together the thyme, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, salt, cayenne and cumin.
  • Toss the plantain in the spice mix and stir until the pieces are coated.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat.
  • Carefully add the plantain. Cook until golden, turning halfway through (mine needed about 2 minutes on each side). Serve immediately.
