Growing up, my mom would make plantain chips for the fam and they were honestly my favorite. Still are to this day! To make them, she would slice up very green plantains and fry them in vegetable oil, or turn them into tostones which were also a fave. Plantains are super versatile. You can boil then, slice and fry them, or wait til they are very ripe and make sweet plantains. Mmm. Can you tell this was the only vegetable I grew up with? LOL
Anyways, to keep this tradition alive in a much healthier manner, I made these baked plantain chips in the oven instead of frying them. They were super easy to make and were as crispy as if you were frying them. To sweeten the deal, I made this vegan garlic dip using Califia’s Unsweetened Almondmilk for an even more enjoyable treat! Here’s what I did.
How To Make Baked Plantains Chips with Vegan Garlic Dip
First, you MUST buy a plantain that is very green. If the plantain is yellow or dark, that means it’s ripe and you won’t get the same result. Green plantains give us a crunchy plantain chip which is what we’re looking for here. Thinly slice the plantain and place the slices on a baking sheet. Spray with coconut oil or avocado oil and season with salt. Bake for 20 minutes or until they are crispy. Ta-da! That’s it! You can enjoy these plantain chips as a snack or even a side dish.
To make this vegan garlic dip, all you do is add vegan mayo, garlic cloves, almond milk, lime juice, and pepper into a food processor. Blend it up and taste test. If it needs salt, feel free to add. Califia’s Unsweetened Almondmilk makes this dip so creamy. It is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, carrageenan-free, non-GMO, kosher, vegan, and BPA-free. There’s no sugar so no need to worry about it altering the taste of this vegan garlic dip.
That’s all folks. This is such a delicious easy snack for any occasion! The garlic dip tastes super garlicky and the consistency is similar to store-bought onion dip. IT’S SO GOOD! Can’t wait for you guys to make it!
