Yield: 4 Servings
|2 larges||Ripe plantains; (up to 3)|
|¼ teaspoon||Nutmeg or allspice or cinnamon|
B: Jay Solomon, THE GLOBAL VEGETARIAN Preheat oven to 400F. Cut off the tips of the plantains. Place the plantains, skin and on, on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the skin is charred and puffy.
Take the plantains out of the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Slice the plantains down the center lengthwise and peel back the skin. Cut the plantains in half widthwise, sprinkle with nutmeg and transfer to serving plates.
TIP: To ripen green plantains, set them out at room temperature for 5 to 7 days. Storing them in a paper bag will speed up the process. Do not refrigerate.
