Fried Plantains (Platano Frito) - Recipe
- 4 large green plantains
- vegetable oil
Use very ripe plantains, almost on the point of turning black. If they're still hard, hit them with a wooden spoon to soften.
Peel and slice the plantains in 1/2 inch round. Fry them in a mix of 50% oil and 50% margarine at medium heat until they turn golden.
Serve hot (to keep warm, sprinkle with sugar and place in warm oven).
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Difficulty: very easy
The soup tastes best if it is prepared the day before.
