Jamaican Eats

This yummy little duo was exactly what Mama was craving!

I may meal prep but I am far from organized. So tonight I made some fried cabbage with fried bananas. Read on for more…

First I sprayed the outside of my vegetables with a diluted white vinegar spray I make at home. Then I rinsed in cold water and chopped up

  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 banana

I heat up a stainless steel wok with soybean oil (feel free to use your oil of choice) and started to coat the cabbage in the wok with the oil. Once the cabbage began to “cook down” I sprinkled kosher salt, minced garlic, dryed thyme, and pepper cayenne pepper. I am sparing with these. Then I added the bell pepper to the cabbage. Try to keep an eye on it and keep it moving so as not to burn your cabbage.

Next I heat up another non stick skillet and put 2tbs of earth balance in the pan then began frying the sliced banana. I threw in some crystalized ginger for an added sweetness.

For the side dressing pictured is vanilla coconut milk yogurt alternative.

The spicy and sweet dishes play together in perfect unison.

I usually sprinkle chia seeds for extra protein.
