  • 8 unripe, green plantains (4 lbs)
  • 1 tsp salt

  3. In a large bowl, mash plantains and add 1/3 cup oil and gradually add the reserved water until you get a smooth consistency.
  4. On medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons of oil. Cook onions until translucent. Turn off heat and mix in the vinegar.
