Today think…plantain fries smothered in goat cheese baked till warm and crispy.
We have three words –
Cheesy. Warm. Crispy.
Do we have you excited yet?
Today we are sharing how we made our grain-free cheesy baked plantain fries. These healthy cheesy plantain fries are warm and cheesy.
There is no denying it… we love our plantains.
And now we love them even more. If that is possible.
We already love and enjoy plantain chips.
Now we found two ways to make crispy plantains fries. Cutting them into fries first gets the plantains more crunchy. Baking the plantain whole then cutting into strips and baking for an additional 5 minutes or so provides [one-sixth-first][/one-sixth-first][one-sixth][/one-sixth][one-sixth][/one-sixth][one-sixth][/one-sixth][one-sixth][/one-sixth][one-sixth][/one-sixth]softer fries.
Growing up we were never huge cheesy fries fans to begin with, but with using plantains as our base and raw goat cheese is a whole other story. YUMMY. We may be re-thinking that. If you are into more savory kind-of-comfort food you will love this recipe! Folks…. these are just that good!
We don’t eat that much dairy, but every once in awhile we like to enjoy some. We are not really sure yet how our bodies handle dairy, still figuring that out. The dairy we enjoy is goat (or sheep) based as we try to avoid cow dairy as much as possible. We try our best to get raw dairy products but that does not always happen. We also make a big effort to get local goat cheese when available. As for us personally, we find goat products easier to digest.
If you’re craving something warm and comforting make these cheesy plantain fries. You’ll save a ton of calories and be completely satisfied!
These are so simple to make too! Plantains make great fries. Cooked in coconut oil… oh yum.
Plantain cheesy fries — yes please! We’ll take the whole plate. Making them as fries really hit the spot.
We used a raw goats cheese from the store. Shredded and melted nicely on the fries.Print
