Baked Plantains Recipe—Plantains look like bananas, but they're much starchier, and therefore do a terrific job of filling in for potatoes (even if they aren’t as crunchy as chips). This recipe from Elizabeth Gordon, author of Simply Allergy-Free, has you wrap them in aluminum foil and bake them, toss them with margarine and salt, and slice them for an irresistible side.
