Banana Blossom Stir Fry

A meal my wife made up on the fly (winged it, as she likes to say). Once you've gone through the long, long, long processing of the banana blossom, it's pretty easy. That info you can find here.

The banana blossom gives an almost coconut-like taste to the dish. It's texture is reminiscent of green onions, perhaps. Not hard, slightly crunchy. Plus, it's just fun to try a new ingredient! Enjoy!

Banana Blossom Stir Fry

Yield: 4 servings
  • 1 banana blossom, prepared
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup cooked rice, dry
Cooking Directions
  1. Boil the prepped banana blossom for a minute. Drain.
  2. Heat the canola oil, stir fry the onion and carrot, then the banana blossom a few minutes later. Add turmeric.
  3. Add the cooked rice until heated through. Add whatever sauces and seasonings you like. Set entire mixture aside.
  4. Scramble the eggs, add the garlic, then add the rice mixture back to the pan. Stir well and enjoy.
