Wait! Don’t go! I know it sounds weird but according to Matt this was ‘f***ing incredible’ and is now ‘our new thing‘. he even made me list everything that went into it, suspecting me of sneaking in half a pack of butter whilst he wasn’t looking.
In fact there are only four simple ingredients. And when I made it for the second time today we had no milk so I substituted it with water and added a few spoonfuls of ripe avocado – it worked a treat.
I would never have discovered this if we hadn’t been given a bunch of green bananas but we were both shocked by how well it worked and how much it resembled ‘proper mash’.
- 4 green bananas
- 7 tablespoons of milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
- Cut the end off the bananas and slice a line through the skin.
- Cut them in half and place in a pan (still in their skins).
- Boil for 15 minutes or until the bananas are soft and have started to split where the skin has been cut.
- Turn off the heat, take out the bananas and throw away any remaining water.
- Use a knife and from to peel the bananas whilst they are still hot.
- Return the bananas to the pan along with the milk.
- Place over a low heat to warm the milk and mash with a fork or potato masher.
- Once you are happy with the texture, stir in the salt and pepper
- Et voila - there you have it, a delicious and easy mash with no potato!
