Mmmmm! Tostones (toe.stone.ease).
A gift from the island Gods … the plantain!
Tostones are akin to a banana chip but savory not sweet. The are made with green plantain, and twice fried. Add a little salt and you are good to go. Definitely my favorite Dominican food. They are easy to prepare once you have a few tricks up your sleeves. Though I am certainly no expert, I make a passable tostone. The tostone press is a handy little kitchen gadget makes them a uniform thickness with ease. The oil needs to be hot but not extreme. Extremely hot oil causes them to cook a little too fast and they risk being overcooked. The following will be a pictorial recipe of sorts. The steps are easy and after a time or two, you’ll be a PRO!
Listen to the palms…
