There is a lot that goes into calling a new place home. You have to set up your new house, learn your way around your new town, find places to get plugged in and meet people, and figure out your new go-to spots for everything from eating out to getting gas in your car.
We’ve had a lot of fun exploring our new home the past month or so. Not only are we in a new place but we also have a new schedule that allows us to have more time to go out and do fun things. We’ve gone for walks at a few parks, seen a movie, and even tested out some new restaurants to see how AIP friendly they are. One of our favorites is a little burger place that allows you to build your own burger with lots of topping options. I always get a regular burger, no bun, with sliced avocado bacon, and sautéed onions. However, one of their claims to fame is their unique menu of fries. They have everything from sweet potato fries to nacho fries, to fries cooked in truffle oil with parmesan cheese on top. Obviously, I can’t enjoy most of these options but their unique pairings gave me some inspiration to try and spice up my usual plantain fry recipe at home. The easiest option from their menu to AIP-ify was their garlic and rosemary fries.
Garlic and rosemary are two of my favorite flavors so I decided to give it a try. The result was simple deliciousness! We paired it with some homemade grass-fed burgers and it was a wonderful weeknight dinner!
What is your favorite way to eat a burger? Do you have any fun fry combos that you enjoy?
Garlic Rosemary Plantain Fries (AIP/Paleo)
2 Green Plantains
2 TBS Olive Oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 TBS Dried Rosemary
8 Cloves of Garlic (minced)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Peel your plantains and cut them into strips. In a medium mixing bowl, toss your plantains in olive oil and combine with seas salt and rosemary. On a lined baking sheet spread you fries in an even layer, with the strips touching as little as possible. Sprinkle your minced garlic on top of the fries and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the pan and rotate the fries, baking for another 5 minutes or until they become slightly golden on top.
