How To Make Baked Tostones (Green Plantains)

Munch on a vegetarian snack with these easy baked tostones. It’s made with green plantains salted and baked until golden and crispy.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 2large green plantains
  • cooking spray
  • kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with oil.

  2. Trim the ends off the plantains. Score each plantain along two sides deep enough to cut through the skins.

  3. Microwave the plantains until they become soft in the center. For 2 plantains this will take about 6 to 6½ minutes. For 1 plantain, about 3 to 3½ minutes, depending on the microwave. The skins will become black.

  4. Peel the plantains and cut them into ¾ inch thick slices while hot to yield about 12 per plantain.

  5. Smash the hot plantains (while hot) with the bottom of a jar, can, or something flat.

  6. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and generously spray with oil, season with salt and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes until golden on the bottom.

  7. Turn and bake on the other side for about 8 minutes until golden and crisp. Season with more salt and eat right away, while hot.
