Tostones with Garlic Sauce

There is a restaurant near me that makes Tostones with a delicious garlic sauce.  After some experimenting I made a sauce that tastes just like the restaurant.  Enjoy!!

 

TOSTONES 

You will need green plantains. One makes about 6-8 tostones depending on size.
oil for frying
adobo seasoning or salt for seasoning, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Cut the plantains into about 1 inch thick slices. Then peel them. I find it easier to peel this way.

Place the peeled slices in a bowl of cold water with about ½ teaspoon salt. Let sit 30 minutes

Heat oil in a fry pan to 350-365 degrees.

Remove from water pat dry, Fry about 4-6 at a time, depending on the size fry pan you are using.  Fry them until they are just golden on all sides.

Remove from oil.  Place on plate with paper towel.

Using 2 pieces of wax paper, place plantain in the middle of wax paper and flatten it with a glass plate.  Careful, they will be hot.

Place the flattened plantain in the oil again until crisp and also golden brown.

when done remove from fry pan and place on a plate with paper towels to drain excess oil.

Sprinkle with salt and/or Adobo seasoning

Serve promptly for the best taste.

 

GARLIC SAUCE:

Add to a small sauce pan

½ teaspoon fresh minces garlic, plus a dash of garlic powder

1 can tomato sauce

Salt & pepper to taste

½ teaspoon oil

Simmer until warm. Serve with tostones.

Enjoy!!!
