So… I am now a firm believer that plantains solve all problems. Really! I have officially opened our window of creativity in the kitchen for convenient lunches, snacks, and appetizers! There will be no sad faces because -with all the food allergies my son has- we can’t enjoy several paleo friendly bread-like recipes. We have found a loop-hole from the whole nutty deal. And that loop-hole is the plantain.
Okay, so that was a little deep… but I have honestly had a ton of fun finding new and creative ways to use the All-Purpose Plantain Wrap recipe. From my Kale Wrap to the yummy Garlic Bread Sticks I made with spaghetti the other night, and now to these adorable little chip bowls… I feel like I am on a roll. And my family is pretty impressed! –By family I mean my husband… he is impressed… but he does eat everything I cook with a smile 🙂 –sweet man.
So, with these chip bowls, the recipe is basically the same as the All-Purpose Plantain Wraps. The execution is different though, and I still enjoy playing around with different spices to change up the flavor.
Lets start with a photo breakdown to show you just how I blend these suckers up and the difference between the “almost there” consistency and the “ready to go” consistency…
Here are all the ingredients in my single serve Ninja blender.
There ya go! Isn’t that nice:)
They are ready for the oven! These are probable a little over 1T each.
Bake @ 375 for 5-7 minutes.
Then, insert them into mini cupcake holders and bake another 7-10 minutes.
Here they are all snuggled up in there tins. Aren’t they cute 🙂
They collect quiet a bit of oil while cooking. That is A-O.K. because the next step will show you how to fix this issue. Notice the crispy edges for doneness.
Carefully remove them from mini muffin tin and flip them upside down on a few folded paper-towels or eco friendly towels.. whatever tickles your fancy. Either way, they need to drain for about 8 minutes. I’m sure I could have waited longer, but I was eager to dig in!
Then fill! The picture above is some quick and easy chicken salad, but these would be great for taco night too!
Maybe even something a little sweeter??
Now that you have seen the step by step instructions, you can find the recipe here. Feel free to play with the spices to better suit your filling! These can be a lot of fun and very versatile! I hope you enjoy them and thanks for stopping by! -Jennifer
