Been hearing "Banana Blossoms" a lot lately? That's because it's now the top choice among the community for a healthier and nutrient-packed meatless alternative to fish. If you're new to this product, don't let it scare you away. If you're not a fan of frying, an easier way to prepare Banana Blossoms is having it simmer in a stew or curry. It absorbs the flavour well, and also keeps you full!
The most common way of preparing Banana Blossoms is to fry it with a batter mix for the end product to resemble the traditional fish & chips. We've shared an oil-free recipe on our blog previously here, and today, we are sharing an allium-free recipe. If you do not take allium (onion, garlic, leek), this recipe will suit you better!
