Why Serve A Sauce With Tostones?

Serving a sauce with tostones is a great way to add flavor and texture.

Here are three reasons why:

  • Flavor: Sauces can provide an extra layer of flavor that complements the crunchy, salty taste of tostones. For example, garlic-infused olive oil or spicy mayonnaise can bring out the savory notes in the dish while adding some heat.
  • Texture: The creamy texture of sauces like guacamole or sour cream can contrast nicely with the crispiness of fried plantains, creating a more interesting eating experience overall.
  • Variety: Serving different sauces alongside tostones gives diners more options for customizing their meal according to their own tastes and preferences. This makes it easier for everyone at the table to find something they enjoy!
