Recipe: Tostones

What you’ll need:

  • 2 Green Plantains
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves Smashed
  • Plastic Wrap
  • A Jar


There’s nothing worse than craving Mexican food and overindulging in crispy, fried chips and salsa. It’s definitely not Paleo and not healthy in the least. Instead of this high-calorie snack, there’s something just as satisfying that’s simple to make. Tostones are fried plantain chips and they are popular in many Latin American countries.
Step 1: Cut the  plantain in 1/2 inch chunks.
Step 2: Peel the skin off.
Step 3: Fry in coconut oil until golden brown on medium to high heat.
Step 4: Remove from the pan and let cool for 5 minutes. Line counter and bottom of jar with plastic wrap. Press and flatten each plantain chunk with bottom of jar.
Step 5: Fry again in coconut oil (with a little olive oil as well) and smashed garlic cloves.
Step 6: Serve with avocado, salsa,  or guacamole.
