How to Make TOSTONES

You'll be able to enjoy this amazing salt-sprinkled golden treat any time of the day!

– 2 plantain (green, unripe) – ½ cup vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon salt, (or more, to taste) Dip – 1 tomato, chopped – 4 sprigs parsley – 1 clove garlic – ¼ teaspoons pepper (freshly-cracked, or ground) – 1 tablespoon olive oil



Peel the plantains and cut into 1 inch [2.5 cm] thick slices.


To fry the tostones, heat the oil over medium heat in a small saucepan, and fry the plantains till light golden (about 5 mins).

Frying again

Fry the plantains again until they turn golden yellow on both sides (about 5 minutes). Flatten the plantains using a tostonera to about ¼" [0.5 cm] (I prefer thin tostones as they are crispier and stay so longer). You can also use the bottom of a big jar and press on a cutting table if you don't have a tostonera.

Sprinkle with salt to taste and serve immediately. Best served freshly fried.



Make the dip: Pulse all the ingredients (tomato, parsley, garlic, pepper, olive oil) until thoroughly blended but not liquefied.
