Vegan-licious Fish & Chips [alliums-free recipe]

Posted by Souley Green on

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!


  • 100g plain flour
  • 175ml cold sparkling water
  • 1 1/4 TSP of baking powder
  • 1/4 TSP of turmeric powder
  • A squeeze of lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt


  • 50g plain flour
  • 1/2 TSP of corn starch



  • Vegan mayo
  • Lemon juice
  • Fresh parsley
  • Black pepper & salt to taste


  1. Batter - Mix all the ingredients and adding the sparkling water gradually into it. Whisk the batter until it reach a consistency of thin custard.
  2. Flour mixture - combine both ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Preheat 1L of oil to 175°c.
  4. Coat banana blossoms with the flour mixture, then dip into the batter mix.
  5. With a non-stick pan, fry coated banana blossoms for 4 minutes and flip them once.
  6. Transfer banana blossoms to an oil draining rack or onto a kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.
  7. Serve with vegan tartar sauce, fries and lemon wedges. Voilà - you've your homemade Vegan-licious fish&chips!
