1very ripe plantain for every 2 people(look for large black spots)
canola oil, in a sprayer or applied with brush or paper towel (optional, but plantains are “sticky” so use if your bakeware isn’t non-stick)
Preheat oven to 375.
Cut off the ends of the plantain. Make a cut through the skin down the length of the plantain, and remove the peel. Cut the plantain into 1/2-inch thick diagonal (slanted) slices.
Line baking sheet with a silicone mat or spray or wipe it lightly with oil. Place the plantain slices on it in one layer. Bake for 15 minutes or until they are browned on the bottom. Be careful–they can burn quickly. Turn slices over. Watch them carefully and bake until both sides are golden, about 25 minutes total. Serve warm.
