Default Iholena recipes?

Can anyone give me some ideas how these can be cooked? I fry them in coconut oil and serve them with cinnamon for breakfast but looking for new ideas.

Thanks

Ulu banana pancakes. Nothing beats that. We have a couple Fe'i fruit right now... currently waiting for them to get nice and soft to cook with. Lumpia is also another favorite. We generally will put green banana with most our food dishes. They are great in chili. I made lau lau last week, they are great with slightly green nanners in them. The Hua Moa or Popo'ulu are great for grating into hash browns.


Get creative.

Iholenas especially can be easily overcooked. We usually steam most of ours and just add salt. They make a delicious side dish.

Thanks, I will try the hash brown idea with my Hua Moa's next time they come in. We've used them in Tostones - Slice them 1.25" thick, fry both sides in coconut oil, smash them to 1/4" and re-fry them. You can put just about anything on top of them. For hash browns do you use them when they are still green? Blanch them before peeling?

Thanks, Steve

Thanks, I'll try that tonight. I have sliced them lengthwise, grilled them in their skins before. That was good!

These are red I think. Yellow on the outside, pinkish on the inside.

Green bananas. Cut the ends off and slice off one side of the peel. The rest of the skin should come off pretty easy. Just grate and treat them like potatoes. We use home made lard or coconut for our oil. Serve with sunny side up eggs, nanner pancakes, and enjoy.

Any. There are many kinds of Iholenas. Ones I have are Kapua, Ula Ula, Iholena Iholena, Lele, 'Upehupehu, "red Iholene" and several other distinct ones that may be variants of Lele.
