What Are Tostones Made Of? 

Tostones are crisp, flattened green plantains that were harvested and deep-fried. The french-fry-like golden exteriors offer a tender and tasty treat, especially when covered in salt. Tostones are also popularly referred to as Patacones, made from slices of unripe, green plantains that have been fried, mashed, and fried once more until they get a beautiful crispy golden color. 


The first fry sears the cut sides of the green plantain, curating the perfect base layer for color. The second fry ensures that every edge is golden and crisp. Cooked plantains offer nutrition similar to potatoes, but tostones provide additional vitamins and minerals. Tostones chips are rich in fiber, vitamin A, C, and B-6. Tostones are also rich in the nutrients magnesium and potassium.
