Air Fryer Plantains

Hello there! I hope everyone is doing great. I’m sharing with you today air fryer plantains, I’ve shared in the past how to fry or bake plantains so we are good on that note…lol. A lady reached out to me on Facebook to ask how to use an air fryer to make plantain which I had since shared with her. However, I want to share with y’all should in case anyone wants to know or doesn’t know you can use an air fryer to make plantains.

This recipe is very easy and similar to the baking method, the only difference is that you’re using an air fryer. I served the air fryer plantains with egg wafflette, recipe is available on the blog but there’s a difference because I used pepper, onions in these wafflettes, you can season it as you desire, I’ll also link it below to check the Wafflette Recipe out. You can use ripe, semi-ripe, or ripe plantains. I used ripe plantains so use whatever suits your need.

How to differentiate them, the green plantains are not ripe, if they’re a little bit yellow and hard, they are not ripe enough, if they are yellow and soft to touch not very soft then they’re ripe enough. If they’re too soft I don’t fry/bake/air fryer them, I add them to beans porridge.

However, if the plantains are too ripe (black peels) they might be too soft, they won’t hold very well, and will stick to the air fryer basket.

This recipe is the simplest thing to do, peel, season the plantains with salt if you desire ( I don’t add salt), spray, and cook in the air fryer. Easy, right? Let’s cook!
