Tostones

Tostones are a crispy, flat plantain that are fried twice.  They make excellent chips for dips and also make great bun options for a paleo sandwich or sliders, which is what I did.  I took some leftover ribs and picked the meat from the bones and placed on tostones and made paleo sliders with some guacamole.  Ole!

Here is what you need for tostones:
Ingredients:
  1.  1 plantain
  2. 4 Tbsp coconut oil, refined so it doesn’t taste like coconut
  3. 1 sheet wax paper
  4. 1 canned good
Directions:
  1.  peel plantain and cut into 1/2″ to 1” pieces
  2. heat coconut oil in skillet on high
  3. when oil is hot place plantain pieces in skillet
  4. flip once when golden brown
  5. once second side is golden take out and place on paper towels
  6. lay wax paper on counter, place plantain piece on it and cover with other half of wax paper
  7. press down with the bottom of a can to flatten out, do to all plantain pieces
  8. once all pieces are flattened, fry again in coconut oil until crispy
  9. let cool on paper towels
  10. Enjoy!
Serve with favorite dips or use as a “Paleo bun” for a sandwich.
