Banana Blossom Stir Fry Directions

Take the pieces of banana blossom and cut them in to thin strips lengthways and leave to one side.

Heat the oil in a frying pan or saucepan and add the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli. Stir over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes to soften, adding a splash of water if it becomes a little dry.

Add the nuts/seeds, courgette and carrots to the pan and stir for a few more minutes to soften.

Add the banana blossom and all of the dressing/sauce ingredients to the pan and stir over a high heat to bubble and heat the banana blossom through.

Serve immediately. You could add rice, quinoa, noodles, etc., to this dish to make it more filling.
