  1. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10- inch baking pan or muffin pan, set aside

  3. Place them on the baking sheets in a single layer; spray lightly over the plantains using the canola oil spray and bake, turning over slices, after 8 minutes for about 12- 20 minutes or till golden brown, depending on your oven.
  4. While the plantains is baking, heat a medium sauce pan over medium high heat and drizzle with 1 Tablespoons of canola oil. Add the onions, tomatoes, green pepper and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl whisk eggs, add sauté vegetable mixture, season with salt and pepper according to preference.
  6. Pour mixture into a greased 10-inch baking pan. Layer the baked plantains and sprinkle the parsley in the baking pan.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes; until mixture is firm in the center.
  8. Let it cool for a few minutes; top with avocado if desired
