Crispy Tostones are a delicious, Whole30 and Paleo side dish for just about everything! Even better when dipped in a bit of this Avocado Crema!
Add all ingredients to a wide-mouth mason jar. Blend until smooth and creamy with an immersion blender (or use a food processor). Taste for seasoning and adjust salt or lime juice as required.
Preheat a cast-iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, peel the plantains and cut into 1" discs on a bias.
Add 1/4 cup of oil to pan and carefully place plantain slices in hot oil. Fry 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer par-cooked plantains to a tray lined with paper towel. Using the bottom of a cup or ramekin, gently smash each of the plantains into discs.
Transfer fried tostones to the tray lined with paper towel and season with coarse sea salt. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200F oven until ready to serve.
