Baked Tostones


This weekend was full of puppy kisses and snuggles, but we didn't get out much. So, instead of going to Orinoco for a fun dinner out (it's one of our favorites), we cooked some venezuelan-inspired food at home. I tried Skinnytaste.com's baked to stones (plantain chips), and they were a huge hit.

What You'll Need:
2 Green Plantains
Cooking Spray
Kosher Salt

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet with the cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Score the plantains on two sides (cutting through the skin) and microwave on high for about 4 minutes. The plantains will turn hot and black. 
  3. While hot, peel the plantains and slice them into 1/2 inch thick slices. With the bottom of a mason jar or some other flat object, press each slice to flatten. This must be done while they're hot!
  4.  Line the smushed plantains in a single layer on your baking sheet, spray with more cooking spray, and generously sprinkle with salt. 
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes until crisp (flipping them once halfway through for even browning). 
  6. Serve warm!
