Baked Ripe Plantain – Nigerian Boli

Baked plantains that are just ripe enough are a culinary masterpiece when paired with groundnut. This traditional Nigerian roadside snack, also called Boli, is traditionally prepared by roasting plantains over a charcoal hearth. The plantains are often roasted on a wire rack set atop the fire. I’ll teach you how to make it in the oven instead, and trust me; it’ll still taste delicious. You may eat these roasted, grilled, or baked ripe delicious yellow plantains for any meal of the day!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 hour

Total Time: 50 minutes

Servings: 2 people


Salt to taste

Two fully ripe plantains

One tablespoon of olive oil – for brushing the plantains 


Turn the oven temperature up to 400 degrees.

Plantains should be washed and dried off with a dry towel.

Remove the plantain’s peel and carefully cut it in half lengthwise.

Place a wire rack on top of foil on a baking sheet.

Toss the cut plantains with some salt and oil, then rub them with clean hands to evenly spread the seasonings.

Cook the plantains in a preheated oven on a rack.

Cook in the oven until done, with the edges turning brown and burnt. After 15 to 20 minutes in the oven, turn the dish over to ensure even browning on both sides. It could take anything from 35 to 45 minutes to prepare everything. Don’t close your eyes and hope it doesn’t burn.

After baking, remove from the oven and serve hot with groundnut.
