Mofongo (Mashed Plantains)

Ingredients

  • 3 Green Plantains or Green Bananas
  • 3 Minced Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Pinch of adobo or salt
  • 1/4 Lb Salted Pork (Chicharrones) or Bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil

Directions

Peel plantains under running water and cut into slices. In a deep fryer or frying pan heat vegetable oil to approximately 350 degrees(F). Fry plantains until firm, not hard—about 4 minutes. Remove and drain them from oil. In another pan cook salted pork or bacon with a bit of salt or adobo until pork fat is liquid. Add minced garlic and olive oil. Remove from heat. In a mortar and pestle or food processor mash the plantains and salted pork with pork fat. Form into small balls and serve as a side dish or use for “Mofongo de Camarones” recipe.
