Paleo Tostones

22 Sep

There is so much out there that is already paleo and people don’t even realize it, so I chuckle when I write “paleo tostones” because they already are paleo!  Translation, paleo fried plantains.

Paleo tostones/fried plantains

Paleo tostones/fried plantains

Ingredients:

Ripe green plantains (not green, but not totally brown)

Coconut oil

Sea salt

Method:

Cut off ends and peel plantains.  Cut, on the bias, each plantain into 6-7 slices.  Heat about 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a cast iron skillet over medium low heat (one plantain worth of slices in the pan at a time, add more oil as needed for multiple rounds of plantains).  Add the plantain slices and flip as needed until they are golden brown and caramelized/crisp on the outside, soft on the inside.  Smash the plantains down with a fork while cooking.  Remove to a paper towel to drain excess coconut oil and sprinkle with sea salt while still hot to season.
