Directions

  1. Cut plantain into three sections. Quarter each section so you have twelve pieces. Season plantain pieces with garlic powder.
  2. Heat oil and margarine together in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook plantains in hot oil until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side; season with black pepper and continue to cook until slightly darker in color, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat and drizzle agave syrup over the plantain pieces. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the plantains.

I had half a plantain leftover so I found this recipe to use it up. The taste was interesting and I liked it. I tried per recipe and then added a sprinkle of pink salt to some.. I preferred it with a little added salt. I don't know how well these cooked at this size in this period of time. It may have been just me but these gave me a bit of an upset stomach.. like they were underripe and undercooked. And yes my plantain was yellow, per the recipe.. just FYI. Maybe don't eat too many of them until you are sure if they will bother you.
