Serves 4 for $3.30


  • 2 (ripe) plantains
  • ¼ tablespoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoons oil
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, no salt added
  • 2 garlic cloves, or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ¼ tablespoon thyme, or Italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 475F
  2. Cut the ends of the plantains, then score the skin to create an opening to peel off the skin. Slice plantains as you prefer, lightly salt and toss in 1 tablespoon oil. Bake for 15 minutes (you may need more time for thicker slices).
  3. Blend (or finely chop) tomatoes, chopped onions, pepper, and garlic in a blender with ½ cup water.
  4. Heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add sliced onions and cook for two minutes. Add tomato paste to onions and cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. Increase heat to medium high, pour in blended vegetables, add spices, and cook for 10 minutes until thickened. Serve immediately with plantains.
