Tostones

Buy green plantains:

Peel and cut into one inch slices

Pour oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat

Brown all sides of cut up plantain

Take out and let rest on a paper towel for a couple of minutes

Smash them flat (Jessica uses folded up foil and an oven mitt to smash them with her hands)

Peel off foil and fry in pan both sides

Take out and set on paper towel to rest.

Add a sprinkle of salt as soon as they come out of the pan so it sticks.
