One green banana
- LisaM Mar 10, 2006 05:15 PM
Looking for suggestions as to how I could prepare it as a side. I bought it by accident - thought it was a "regular" banana, unripe, but darned if the little rascal hasn't stayed green all week.
Please note, it's not a green plantain.
Any ideas for something easy & tasty?
Banana's Foster are prepared with under-ripe bananas. If they're not incredibly green and hard as a rock they should work fairly well in that recipe.
Try slicing them about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick and fry them in oil at about 225 degrees until they are caramelized, toss with a little sugar and dry on paper towels. I do this and put them on salads, very yummy. Happy cooking.
Here is a recipe for banana fries, apparently they taste similar to potato fries.
Samoans eat their bananas green, so I also did a search for Samoan green banana and found this traditional recipe on a Polynesian blog.
