Green bananas in coconut cream. When served with sugar, they make a great dessert, when served with diced onion, they make a mean side dish. Yummy!!!

Cattleya Canterbury, New Zealand

Serves: 8 

  • 8 green bananas, peeled
  • 1 (400g) tin coconut cream
  • sugar, to taste

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. In a saucepan, cover bananas with water then boil until soft. Drain. In a separate saucepan, heat coconut cream with sugar to taste. Pour over the bananas to serve.


If you are more keen on savoury than sweet, don't add the sugar, but add 1/4 of a diced onion to the coconut milk instead and serve as a side dish.


Cut though the skin lengthwise without cutting the banana. You may have to use the back of a knife or a spoon handle to peel the bananas.
