This is just a wonderful healthy recipe that almost anyone can eat. But the presentation can take on a fun and creepy appeal for Halloween, if desired.
Recipe type: Appetiser
Cuisine: Latin American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 plantain that's green but starting to turn yellow, peeled and thinly sliced on bias
  • 1½ teaspoons oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided (or to taste)
  • 1 avocado, halved, pitted and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
  • ½ cup thinly shredded purple cabbage
  1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Toss the plantain slices with the canola oil and season with a pinch of salt. Arrange the plantain slices in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet, preferably not touching.
  3. Bake the plantains for 18 to 20 minutes, or until crispy and lightly golden. Let cool completely.
  4. Scoop the avocado flesh into a small bowl and mash (reserve one half avocado shell). Stir the mashed avocado with the lime juice, garlic, and remaining salt (or to taste). Stir in slaw, reserving some for garnish.
  5. Scoop the guacamole into the reserved avocado shell. Stick the reserved cabbage shreds out of avocado mixture to look like hair, if desired.
  6. Serve the guacamole cup with the plantain chips.
