Let’s gather the ingredients!

  • 3 medium green plantains peeled
  • 4 cups water cold
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • coarse salt for sprinkling


Let’s Begin!

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cold water and kosher salt. Slice the plantain into 1 1/2-inch-thick chunks and soak them in water for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the plantains from the water and dry each one thoroughly. Toss the plantain slices in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil. Make sure each plantain is coated in a thin layer of oil.
  • Transfer the plantains to your air fryer’s basket leaving a 1/2 inch of space on all sides of the slices to allow the air to circulate properly.
  • Fry for 3 to 6 minutes per side. Until the plantain offers no resistance when pierced with the tip of a knife.
  • Increase the air fryer’s temperature to 400°F. Remove the plantain slices from the basket and smash each one in a tostonera or place your soft plantain between a piece of parchment paper and smash it with a coffee mug. The plantain should be a flat 1/4-inch thick disc that holds together.
  • Return the smashed plantains to the air fryer basket and brush a light layer of oil onto the top side of the tostones and fry for 3 minutes on the first side. Flip the tostones and brush once more with a light layer of oil, then fry for the final time for 4 minutes.
  • Serve with a light sprinkle of coarse salt and enjoy with family and friends!
