Baked Plantain and Spinach Wrap

A lot of people have asked for healthier and oil-free recipes so today I present to you an oil-free, low-calorie, baked plantain and spinach wrap! It’s super easy to make and really tasty – combining the sweetness of ripe plantains with the spiciness of the spinach filling. It’s a perfect meal to serve to guests that have specific dietary needs (i.e. vegans/ people looking to cut cholesterol levels). And, it’s pretty 😀

Enjoy!

For the plantain
  1. 1 ripe plantain

  2. Place plantain on an oven tray lined with aluminum foil. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and black pepper and place in oven for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked and golden in color
  3. Note: plantain shouldn't be baked until it is too crisp to aid wrapping process
Filling
  1. Chop spinach and bell peppers and place in a pot with soy sauce. Place pot on medium heat
  2. Season with ginger, garlic and chilli peppers
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes, to prevent spinach from going too limp and losing freshness.

  1. Wrap plantain in cylindrical form and use toothpick to hold it's shape
  2. Scoop a spoonful of spinach filling into each plantain wrap
  3. Serve immediately (I served mine with shito on the side for that extra kick! Shito recipe: http://www.tatashey.com/recipe/make-shito/ )
