Serves: 4

Plantains are "cooking bananas" popular in tropical areas of Latin America. Traditionally served as a side dish with black beans, this recipe can also be used as a dessert with an exotic flair. A dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream lends a deliciously sour counterpoint to the sweetness of the sugared plantains.

Ingredients: 

  • 4 ripe (brown or black) plantains
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Method: 

Trim the ends of the plantains and peel. Cut each diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices, then roll in sugar, if using.

Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add plantains and cook for about 2 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and caramelized. Remove with slotted spoon and pat gently with paper towels. Serve warm.
