  • 1 large green plantain (ends trimmed and peeled (6 oz after))
  • olive oil spray (I like Bertolli)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder


1- With a sharp knife cut a slit along the length of the plantain skin, this will make it easier to peel. Cut the plantain into 1 inch pieces, 8 total.
2- In a small bowl combine the water with salt and garlic powder.
3- Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
4- When ready, spritz the plantain with olive oil and cook 6 minutes, you might have to do this in 2 batches.
5- Remove from the air fryer and while they are hot mash them with a tostonera or the bottom of a jar or measuring cup to flatten.
6- Dip them in the seasoned water and set aside.
7- Preheat the air fryer to 400F once again and cook, in batches 5 minutes on each side, spraying both sides of the plantains with olive oil.
8- hen done, give them another spritz of oil and season with salt. Eat right away.
