Green Bananas

Last night’s dinner is a must share. Better late than never (maybe?).

We had a bunch of bananas that were still green after two weeks. I figured we would get more bananas in our Bountiful Basket today. Two whole bunches of green bananas seemed like too many. We need to use those bananas up. How, you ask? By making them into french fries!

The tricky part is peeling green bananas but everything after that is easy. After they have been peeled (I use a butter knife to help) slice them into wedges, drizzle a baking sheet with oil, spread bananas on sheet, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with spices. After baking for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees (flip once) the bananas turn into something very similar to a french fry. We even eat them with ketchup. Yum!

The rest of dinner was black lentils, steamed garlic broccoli, and wilted power greens. The adults had those thing mixed together with a mustard dressing.


Izzy finished first! It was a very yummy dinner. The lentil mustard dressing combination is a real winner. I cannot get enough (I ate some later as a late night snack and Brian had the rest with his breakfast!).
