Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
One of my familys fave! I do not think there's any of my kids that dont like tostones... My husband loves them too. My variation to the recipe is that after i peel and slice the plantain i put in water with adobo before frying , these gives them more flavor. after frying i use a tostonera to mash the toston a bit and then return to fry pan to crisp. Then just make a mix of fresh crush garlic with a bit of olive oil which i heat. We love it alone, with fried pork or chicken or just as a side with rice, beans and chicken. And by the way a plantain is not a banana, it is much larger and firm than a banana. The peel is very different too. When plantains become ripe you can slice and fry to make what is called Maduro . This is a sweet version though and you just fry once you do not refry..

Caribbean-Style Sofrito

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
This is anything but bland, i do not cook beans, soups or many other meals with out sofrito . I make my sofrito the puerto rican style and i have never had a dinner guest who did not ask for my red beans recipe, of course the secret is in the sofrito. Just love my sofrito!!!!!
