Green Banana Salad

Tofu Bolognese

Ingredients

6 green bananas
¼ cup plant-based milk or 1 teaspoon vinegar
100 grams cooked ota tendrils, any other greens or beans
1 cup coriander or basil leaves
1 cup chopped spring onions
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes or chopped ripe tomato
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp lime juice
1/3 cup virgin organic coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper

 

 

Method

1. Cut the core ends off the bananas
2. Boil the bananas in plenty of water with a little milk or vinegar; this will stop black marks cooking in the skin of the bananas
3. When the bananas are just soft, the skins will split
4. Drain and let cool
5. Peel the bananas
6. Slice into a bowl
7. Add the lime juice and olive oil
8. Add chopped tomatoes, greens, ota tendrils or veges of choice
9. Add the coriander or basil leaves, spring onions and garlic
10. Toss all ingredients well
11. Garnish with ota or other greens
