  • 4 unripe green plantains, sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil instead of 3 cups!
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp salt to taste


  • Cut plantains into rounds. (Thinner = more crunch!)
  • In a mixing bowl, toss plantain rounds in spices.
  • In a pan, heat coconut oil over high heat. Turn heat down to medium-high and add plantain slices.
  • Fry for about 5 minutes per side, until golden.
  • Transfer to a paper towel. (You could also bake these, but it doesn’t give the same crispness!)
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter for 4-5 days.
