Tostones
Ingredients:
1 large green plantain peeled and sliced into ½ inch rounds
3 Tablespoons of coconut oil
Garlic salt for seasoning

Glass for flattening plantains

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Place the plantains in the oil and fry on both sides; approximately 3 1/2 minutes per side.
  2. Remove the plantains from the pan and flatten the plantains by placing a glass over the fried plantains and pressing down. You may want to brush the bottom of the glass with some coconut oil the plantains from sticking.
  3. Return them to the hot oil and fry 1 minute on each side or until crispy and lightly browned. Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste and serve immediately.
