A healthy and homemade snack of baked plantain chips served alongside a spicy vegan nacho cheese sauce. A zesty and flavorful crispy treat that’s also addicting!


  • 2 green plantains, sliced very thin
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced.
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup Vegan Cheese Sauce (Try this recipe for The Best Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce!)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel the plantains and slice them as thin as possible, about 1/8 inch. Use a mandolin for uniform results but a knife will work as well.
  3. In a bowl, place the olive oil, lime zest and juice, and salt & pepper.
  4. Place the plantain slices into the bowl and toss until all are lightly coated.
  5. Arrange the plantain slices in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. You may need more than one or work in batches.
  6. Then, place plantain slices in the oven and let cook for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
  7. While the plantains cook, prepare your cheese sauce.
  8. Finally serve the plantain chips alongside the cheese sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
  9. Leftover plantain chips can be stored at room temperature in a resealable bag and leftover cheese sauce can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week.
