Tostones (Twice Air Fried Plantains)
Appetizer, Side Dish, Snack
Air Fryer Tostones made healthier! No deep frying, just a few spritzes of olive oil for a crispy, delicious appetizer or side dish.
large green plantain
(ends trimmed and peeled (6 oz after))
olive oil spray
(I like Bertolli)
With a sharp knife cut a slit along the length of the plantain skin, this will make it easier to peel. Cut the plantain into 1 inch pieces, 8 total.
In a small bowl combine the water with salt and garlic powder.
Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
When ready, spritz the plantain with olive oil and cook 6 minutes, you might have to do this in 2 batches.
Remove from the air fryer and while they are hot mash them with a tostonera or the bottom of a jar or measuring cup to flatten.
Dip them in the seasoned water and set aside.
Preheat the air fryer to 400F once again and cook, in batches 5 minutes on each side, spraying both sides of the plantains with olive oil.
When done, give them another spritz of oil and season with salt. Eat right away.
