Extremely quick, cheap, satisfying to the taste-buds and nutritious snack. Plantain is surprisingly filling and quite sweet, a taste which goes well with the salt and black pepper taste. The plantain softens and the flavour develops into a sweeter one when frying. However, I have also made a raw version of this dish, by ensuring that the plantain is completely ripe (black on the outside) and then just mashing it with a fork and enjoying it with salt and pepper. The texture is more pleasant when frying, but for a raw foodist it can be an equally quick and easy, filling and satisfying snack. This fried plantain recipe works very well as a side dish to meals as well.
Cost: £0.65 (GBP)
Yield: 1 side dish-size serving

I learned this quick snack recipe from my boyfriend, and it has been a favourite snack ever since.
