Oven Roasted Sweet Plantains

2 large ripe plantains -- (2 to 3)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg or allspice or cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut off the tips of the plantains. Place the plantains, skin and on, on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the skin is charred and puffy.

Take the plantains out of the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Slice the plantains down the center lengthwise and peel back the skin. Cut the plantains in half widthwise, sprinkle with nutmeg and transfer to serving plates.

TIP: To ripen green plantains, set them out at room temperature for 5 to 7 days. Storing them in a paper bag will speed up the process. Do not refrigerate.
