Green Banana Fries
“I learned about this when I was in Kenya. I’ve never tasted better fries nor more nutritious fries. Potatoes aren’t that common in Kenya but bananas and roots are. They taste as good as any fast food French fries and are healthier. Green bananas are the healthiest because they have all their vitamins where ripe ones lose most of them because they’re too ripe. Green banana’s do not have a strong banana flavor at all. It’s very deceptive and very healthy. I couldn’t stop eating them.”
Original Recipe Yield 6 servings
- 5 small unripe (green) bananas
- 1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
- salt to taste
- 1.Peel the bananas using a knife, as they are not ripe and will not peel like a yellow banana. Slice into long thin wedges or strings to make fries.
- 2.Heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. If you have a deep-fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the banana fries into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oil, and drain on paper towels. Pat off the excess oil, and season with salt. Serve immediately.
