Stove Top


5 Tbsp
olive oil
2 medium
green bananas
2 tsp
granulated sugar
1 medium
1 pinch
ground cinnamon
1 pinch
ground allspice
1 c
uncooked wild rice
2 c
stock (vegetable, cicken or fish)


1NOTE: It is important that bananas are green and firm; otherwise they will become soggy
2Place liquid stock in medium size saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil.

Add rice and a pinch of salt, cover tightly and turn heat to low.

Simmer the rice for 18-20 minutes just until tender and remove from heat. Keep covered and set aside to cool.
3Slice 2 bananas into 1/2 inch slices and place in a bowl with sugar. Toss gently so that all banana pieces are coated with sugar.
4Peel onion and finely dice. (Using food processor is easier and quicker). Set aside.
5Place 2 tablespoons of oil in large heavy skillet over medium high heat.

When oil is shimmering, add the bananas in a single layer to the hot oil.

Cook 1 or 2 minutes on each side until bananas are nice and brown.

Transfer bananas to a plate and set aside.
6Add the 3 remaining tablespoons of oil to the pan, allow to heat for 1 minute, then add the onion.

Sauté a few minutes until the onions are softened and translucent. Season with the cinnamon and allspice.
7Add the cooked rice to the onions and cook until heated through, stirring with a wooden spoon constantly.

Remove from heat, add the bananas and fold into rice mixture with the wooden spoon.
8An excellent side dish for just about any kind of meat.
