Tostones are one of my favorites!  The problem is the traditional preparation method include frying them… twice!  No thank you.

Tostones are often made for the Jewish holiday, Hanukkah. Here is my take on the popular Latin treat.  Enjoy!

  1. Didn’t work for me 🙁 I followed the recipe exactly how it is here. Maybe your recipe worked cause the plantain in the picture looks ripe and they’re softer and cook faster. Mines were green. After the first 10 minutes in the oven the didnt look brown anywhere so I put them in another 10 minutes and they just look a bit burned on some areas so I decided to fry them cause I didnt want to risk wasting them.
