Nicole’s Tostones


  • 5 Tablespoons oil for frying
  • 3 Ripe Plantains (They are ripe when the skin is yellow and black. The more black, the riper/sweeter)
  • Salt to taste


01Peel the plantain and cut it into 1-inch chunks.

02Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place the plantains in the oil and fry on both sides. About 2 minutes per side.

03Remove the plantains from the pan and flatten the plantains by placing a plate, measuring cup or glass over the fried plantains and pressing down.

04Return the plantains to the hot oil and fry 1 minute on each side. Salt to taste and serve immediately.

05Serves 6 people. Reduce or increase the plantain depending on the number of people.
