10 ways to serve Plantain Chips that you never knew about!
At Purely, we’re passionate about Plantain Chips! We worked extremely hard to get the recipes for our flavoured Plantain Crisps just right so that they taste amazing, making them the perfect snack to enjoy on their own.
But did you know that they can also be enjoyed as part of some amazing dishes or a great tasting accompaniment to a meal.
While we’ve made them to be eaten on their own as a delicious snack, using Purely Plantain Chips as an ingredient can really take meal times or party food to the next level!
Here are 10 different ways to serve Purely Plantain Chips at your next dinner party.
Why not try one of these creative ways to serve Plantain Chips to guests next time you have friends or family over or just make them for yourself - it’s a great way to test them out! ;)
1. Plantain Nachos
Replace regular tortilla chips with Purely Nice & Spicy Plantain Chips next time you make nachos.
Top them with your usual nacho toppings like cheese, guacamole, or salsa. The combination of the lightly spiced plantain crips and some melted cheese, cool guacamole, or maybe even extra spicy salsa makes a great side or main dish for entertaining guests or whilst sat watching sports or a movie.
You could also try topping your plantain nachos with some vegan black bean chilli and vegan sour cream for a great-tasting vegan chilli plantain chip nacho dish.
2. Plantain Chip Salad
Add some Purely Wild Garlic Plantain Chips to your favourite salad for a little extra garlicky crunch. You can either add them whole or crunch them up into smaller pieces.
The wild garlic flavour pairs well with fresh greens and avocado.
If you crush the crisps into smaller pieces, they go great in a potato salad with avocado mayonnaise!
3. Plantain Chip Dip
Crush up any flavour of Purely snacks and mix them into your favourite dip like hummus, guacamole, or salsa to add an extra depth of flavour and a little crunch.
The Wild Garlic flavour pairs really well with baba ganoush or tzatziki, the Nice & Spicy flavour pairs great with a chunky salsa or mexican cheese dip, and the Sea Salt flavour chips go great in hummus or a caramelised onion dip!
4. Plantain Chip Breadcrumbs
If you grab a rolling pin and smash a packet of Purely's popular snacks to smithereens (just make sure the packet is open first so you don’t get a plantain explosion), you end up with gluten free breadcrumbs, which you can use in place of regular breadcrumbs in a variety of dishes.
Add smashed Nice & Spicy flavour plantain chip breadcrumbs to your favourite burger mix recipe, use Wild Garlic plantain chips to enrich the flavour of your next bread sauce, or add Sea Salt flavour to a mac & cheese recipe!
5. Plantain Chip Crust
As with the breadcrumbs above, if you smash up a packet of your favourite plantain flavour, you can use the crushed chips to add a delicious and crunchy crust to a range of foods.
Crush up some Wild Garlic Plantain Chips and use the crumbs to coat a garlic butter stuffed chicken kiev or vegan alternative for extra garlicky goodness.
Use Nice & Spicy flavour to coat some chicken or vegan nuggets to further enhance the taste of the nuggets.
Or crush up some Sea Salt fried plantain to coat some homemade fish fingers or vegan alternative.
6. Plantain Chip Breakfast
You can add Purely Plantain Chips to a range of different breakfast options to add extra crunch and flavour.
Add them to your favourite homemade granola recipe, include a handful with your choice of cereal, or add some with seeds, nuts, sultanas, and anything else you like to some porridge first thing in the morning.
7. Plantain Chip Trail Mix
Perfect for an on-the-go option, trail mix makes for a tasty and filling snack.
Simply mix your favourite flavour, we think Purely Sea Salt Plantain Chips work great, with some nuts, seeds, and dried fruit, for an easy-to-make batch of plantain snack trail mix.
This plantain chip trail mix will help you satisfy your hunger and give you a little boost of energy to keep you going.
8. Plantain Chip Sandwiches
Ever tried a crisp sandwich? Why not give it a try with Purely Plantain Chips in place of crisps?
Crisp sandwiches are a staple British snack or lunch indulgence and have been a part of many a Brit’s childhood.
Simply add your chosen Purely Plantain Chips flavour to your favourite sandwich filling or use them on their own as the main filling with buttered bread, to create an amazingly nostalgic treat of a sandwich.
9. Plantain Chip Crackers
Who doesn’t love a good cheese platter? Or maybe a charcuterie board?
You can use Purely Plantain Chips in place of or in addition to crackers for your next cheese board or charcuterie board!
Our flavoured plantain chips add an extra layer of flavour to the cheeses and meats and make a great addition to cheese and charcuterie platters.
10. Plantain Chip Ice Cream
Wait… hear us out!
Ever heard of sweet potato ice cream? What about avocado gelato? Roasted garlic ice cream anyone?
