"Fried plantains are a traditional treat in many parts of the world. Try them once and you'll be hooked. Yellow (ripe) work best. Serve this as a sweet and savory side dish to a meal, as a dessert, or as a snack. They are also delicious atop a dark, leafy, and green spinach or kale salad with goat cheese."

  1. Cut plantain into three sections. Quarter each section so you have twelve pieces. Season plantain pieces with garlic powder.
  2. Heat oil and margarine together in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook plantains in hot oil until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side; season with black pepper and continue to cook until slightly darker in color, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat and drizzle agave syrup over the plantain pieces. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the plantains.
