Tostones

Submitted by: Heike Gehder Barker

Serves: 1-???
Difficulty: Easy - for beginners

Ingredients

plantains, cooking oil

Method

Heat the oil to 375 degrees.

While the oil is heating up, peel the green plantains and then cut them into 3/4 inch slices.

Fry the slices in the hot oil for 3 minutes. They should be a light golden color and semi-soft.

Remove the plantain slices with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Maintain the oil’s temperature.

When the plantain slices are cool enough to handle (about 1 minute), smash them into flat rounds.

Fry the rounds in the hot oil for 3 minutes. They will turn crisp and golden brown.

Remove the tostones with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Salt to taste.
