These plantain crisps are fried in coconut oil and perfect for dipping in chimichurri sauce!
  • 2 plantains, peeled and sliced thin
  • ~ ½ c coconut oil (depending on size of saucepan)
  • sea salt
  1. Pour coconut oil into saucepan so that it is about ¼ in thick.
  2. Heat oil for 3 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Drop the plantains into the oil one by one to avoid overlap.
  4. Once slices are perfectly golden and crisp, take out of the oil with a perforated spoon, and lay flat on a paper towel on top of a plate to cool.
  5. Repeat as necessary until all of the plantains are fried.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and serve with your favorite dipping sauce such as chimichurri!
