Green Banana and Pumpkin Mashup Recipe

Sometimes I have to cook what I have on hand if I'm unable to go to the store. Finances are low sometimes and other times going to the store is just not possible.  So I am learning to do like our grandmothers and great grandmothers did in times past - make do with what I have.  This has led to some interesting recipes, some of which you've already seen.

On one such occasion when I was unable to go to the store, I had pumpkin and I had green banana so I decided to do a mashup.  It came out tasting good surprisingly.  It made a great side dish.  Here is the recipe:

Green Banana and Pumpkin Mashup

Green Banana and Pumpkin Mashup

3 green bananas
1 cup diced pumpkin
1/2 onion
1 clove garlic
Dash of curry
Sea salt
Coconut oil/Olive oil

Peel green bananas(see how to peel green banana video here). Place pumpkin and green bananas in salted water to boil.  While they are cooking, chop onion and grate garlic.  Saute the onion and garlic in  a bit of oil until onion is translucent. Add a dash of curry, mix well and set aside. When green bananas and pumpkin are done cooking, mash with a fork or use a food processor.  Add the sauteed seasoning and mix well.  Taste and add more sea salt if necessary. Serve and enjoy!

P.S. Peeling the pumpkin is optional. I prefer to leave the green skin on when I cook pumpkin for the added nutrients.
