Blend or process the two plantains, 1/3 cup avocado oil, sea salt and water until it is the consistency of hummus

Spoon the plantain mixture onto two parchment-lined baking pans and bake in center of oven for 20-25 minutes, switching pans/racks midway through

I wasn’t too sure whether these were going to hold up with toppings–they didn’t resemble the photo from the recipe I followed

The shells held up to folding and the meal was a hit among the three of us. We liked the texture and flavor and the flexible center with crunchy edges.

Recipe from: Fresh Tart.

Thanks to Chris Kresser for the inspiration.
