Vegan Griot

Vegan version of Haitian style griot




  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Combine all ingredients except salt.
  3. Taste it first and then add the amount of salt needed to maximize the flavor to your liking.
  4. Ideally, let this marinate overnight, however if you can’t let it sit for at least 10 minutes.
  5. Spread evenly on a non-stick roasting pan leaving space in between the pieces so they can crisp.
  6. Spray with avocado oil and put in oven.
  7. Cook for 40-45 minutes, and turn pieces over every 10 minutes for even browning and crisping. You may need to continue to spray with avocado oil if you find it looks dry.
  8. Remove from oven and serve immediately with green plantains, avocado and pikliz.
