Tostones - Fried Green Plantains | Gutsy By Nature
Tostones are my new obsession. I make them for breakfast at least a couple times a week, since discovering they were a great source of paleo and AIP-friendly starch. What are they? Tostones are fried green plantains and are also called patacones, fritos verdes, or banan peze - depending on which country is doing the naming. They are a staple of Latin American and Caribbean diets; I first encountered them in Ecuador (where they are called patacones and typically served with a garlic mojo sauce) and then again in Puerto Rico where I gobbled them up every time I saw them on the menu.
