I purchased a plantain because I know that I like them but have never made them at home. I prefer the non-sweet version so I decided to try out baked tostones. While I had the oven on I decided to whip up some baked peaches since we had some very ripe peaches.
The recipe for tostones all called for green plantains. My plantain wasn’t green but I think it turned out fine anyhow.
I sliced up the plantain into thick slices and tossed with salt and just a drizzle of olive oil.
After spreading them out on a baking sheet that was covered in olive oil spray and baking for about 15 minutes, I flipped and smashed them with the bottom of a cup. They baked for another 15 - 20 minutes and were done! I enjoyed them but next time I’ll be sure to have some dipping sauce to go along with the tostones.
At the same time, I sliced up some peaches, tossed them with some brown sugar, cinnamon and honey and baked them until soft. Delicious!
