Smashed Garlic Plantains - Mofongo
40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
8 ingredients
4 servings
This is a classic Puerto Rican dish that is also popular in Cuba (similar to the Dominican "mangu"). If you don’t have a tostonera (two pieces of wood hinged together to flatten plantains) use a glass or a small plate to flatten the plantains. If you don't use bacon and stop at step 2 you have tostones which also a great side dish.
