Back to this easy creamy green banana sauce recipe. If you have no idea of what am talking about when I mention green bananas, they are unripe bananas.
You can buy them mostly from African-Asian groceries shops.
Green bananas are very high in resistant starch, actually, they're prebiotics. Meaning that you can NOT digest them but your microbiome will have a good feast when you consume green bananas and other prebiotics food for that matter.
Now you are asking, "why on earth should I eat something that I can't digest?"
Because you have to feed your microbiome which in turn will promote your health and help you fight off some diseases caused by chronic inflammation. Do you see, transactions started long way before we commercially got involved
This easy creamy green banana sauce recipe carries its name so well, it's indeed creamy, delicious, and it's so easy to make it.
You can opt to just boil everything in the pan skipping the frying part, to quicken the process.
But what makes this cream sauce so creamy and delicious is that time you let the green banana to stick a little and caramelize in the pan. Also letting the spices heat on their own creates the flavor that you won't get with the boiling option.
Peeling off green banana can be a messy thing to do as the banana do stick on your hands. To avoid this, Store your green bananas wrapped in the fridge. Take them out and use them immediately.
We use our creamy green banana sauce on almost everything, I mean in the vegetable world lol.
And am very sure this would be awesomely delicious on stewed meat!
We find it very delicious on millet, quinoa, rice, and baked or steamed potatoes.
I add it in the veggies to thicken the sauce.
What I find so amazing with this sauce, is the fact that the flavor isn't that pronounced. So it can go with almost everything, I even do scoop some in my raw veggies.
Pour your creamy banana sauce in a jar, store it in your fridge and use it in 3-4 days.
