Green figs (Trinidad and Tobago) aka green bananas are so nutritious and packed with iron so I am always excited to try various recipes with green bananas. So I am going to show you how to make a green banana pie
6 green bananas aka figs
1/2 sweet pepper finely chopped
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
Cut off the ends of the green bananas and put into a pot of water and put on the stove. Allow the bananas to cook. The skin of the green bananas will burst open a bit and will become a darker green color.
When the bananas are cool, peel off the skin. In St. Vincent and other parts of the Caribbean Islands the skin of the bananas are peeled off before putting to cook.
Cut the peeled green bananas into small pieces and mash with potato masher. You can use a fork to mash up the larger pieces of green bananas.
Add the other ingredients and mix together well. Transfer to greased baking dish and garnish with grated cheese. Set oven 350 degrees. Baking time about 30 minutes.
