Plantain are a member of the banana family. They are longer with thicker skins, and are typically eaten cooked instead of raw. They are highly nutritious with good source of potassium, vitamin A and C, and dietary fiber. And not to mention, they are full of carbohydrates too! I use green plantain for making the chips. It is easy to make and all you need is a sharp mandoline with hot oil. Deep fried until they are crispy. Top them with some sea salt and it's done!
