This is a great way to introduce international flare to you diet in a quick and easy way!

Serves 7
Time required 15 minutes
Difficulty level 1

  • 7 whole green bananas or plantains, peeled
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) butter
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) nutmeg

Slice the bananas/plantains lengthwise and then in half, making 4 pieces from each banana. Melt the butter over medium heat in a shallow pan.

Put lemon juice in a shallow bowl that is big enough to fit the banana pieces inside. Dip the bananas in the juice, covering the outside. Shake off excess juice and place in the pan. Brown the bananas lightly, remove and place on paper towels to drain.

Spring with nutmeg and brown sugar  and enjoy!
