TOSTONES (TWICE FRIED PLAINTAINS) RECIPE

by | 2017 | Black Beans, Coconut, Food, Plantain, Sea Salt, The Lills

After visiting Puerto Rico, we fell in love with tostones (twice fried plaintains). Plantains are like bananas, but firmer and less sweet. We had no idea how absolutely delicious they are when cooked right. When we left Puerto Rico and made it back to the mainland, we decided to learn how to make them ourselves. Enjoy our Tostones recipe with black beans and rice below!

Easy Tostones Twice Fried Plantains Recipe | The Lills

To make Tostones:

  • Cut the plantains into 1 inch slices
  • Heat 3-4 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil in a pan
  • Fry the plantains on both sides until color appears, 1-2 minutes
  • Place the fried plantains in a towel lined bowl to absorb the excess oil
  • Once the plantains have cooled, press each one between your cutting board and a paper towel so they become about half their height
  • Heat 3-4 tablespoons of the coconut oil slightly hotter than the first fry
  • Fry the plantains again on both sides until crispy (Keep in mind not to burn them on the second fry)
  • Cool the plantains in a towel lined bowl and sprinkle sea salt, if desired.
  • Serve warm with black beans and rice.

Ingredients:

  • 1 plantain
  • 8 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
