Paleo Roasted Lemon Plantains and Plums

Yum. These are so stinkin’ good. I usually make sweet plantains because I love bananas, but I wanted something a little tart. If you’re not a fan of tart you can always add some stevia or honey (if you’re not on WLC). I think this makes for a perfect breakfast or side with some chicken or pork chops.

Ingredients:

  • 3 over-ripe plantains
  • 2 black plums
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil; melted
  • Sea salt
  • Juice of a quarter of a lemon

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Slice your plantains and cut your plums into wedges.
  3. Add your plantains first to a glass baking dish and drizzle coconut oil and sea salt.
  4. Add your plums and squeeze your lemon.
  5. At this point, if you aren’t a fan of tartness, you can add your stevia or honey. I chose not to 🙂
  6. Toss your mixture and bake for 25 minutes or until plums start to wilt. 
  7. Serve cold or hot! 

**Another suggestion I have for added sweetness is to caramelize your plums before adding them to your dish. Just saute them in a fry pan with coconut oil and pour juices over your plantains before roasting. 

Let me know how you enjoy this 🙂
