Breadfruit “Tostones”

Tostones – twice fried green plantains is something I make and eat regularly. It is a favourite to have anytime of the day. They can be eaten on their own, with salsas – fresh or cooked and be served as the starch with roasts and grilled proteins, even stews.

A couple of years ago I found out that one can make tostones with breadfruit too; I did not need to be convinced twice. Since then, whenever breadfruit is in season, I make breadfruit tostones, giving the green plantains a rest. Unlike the plantain tostones, which are best eaten hot, the breadfruit tostones stay soft even after they have cooled. Honestly, they are exceptionally good. Try it and tell me what you think…..
