    Serves: 4 as a side dish

    Ingredients

    • 2 large, fairly firm plantains
    • 5cm ginger piece
    • 2 cloves of garlic
    • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
    • 2 tsp thyme leaves
    • 2 limes
    • 50g unsalted butter
    • 1 tbsp clear honey

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7.
    2. Peel 2 large, fairly firm plantains and cut into 2cm slices. Peel and thinly slice a 5cm piece of ginger and crush 2 cloves of garlic. Heat 2 tbsp sunflower oil in non-stick, oven-proof frying pan and add the plantain, ginger and garlic, as well as 2 tsp thyme leaves. Fry for a few minutes.
