Easy Way to Make Tostones – The Microwave “Hack”

06 Jun

Today a quick video on how to make one of my wife and I’s favorite side dishes. I was born in Puerto Rico, and what I miss most about the island is the FOOD!

Traditionally tostones, which are savory fried green plantains, are fried twice. The first fry is to par cook them and soften them enough to smash them into shape. The second fry is to crisp them up!

Instead of frying them first, I simply cook them in the microwave for 5 minutes. The rest of the process is the same as normal. Hope everyone enjoys!

Never made tostones? Make them today!
