I was born in the beautiful island of Barbados. I started eating vegan in 2006 but as an island girl we like food big in flavour so being vegan was a bit tricky at first.As time went by I was able to enjoy some Barbadian meals after veganizing them.
My blog has moved and I have since moved to Vegan in the Sun email me for the new website

SORRY ABOUT THE AMATEUR PICS I do not like mashed potatoes because it is not robust and rich enough for me. I am not one to use a lot of fat in potatoes to make it rich So I use green banana and it is the best thing I ever tasted. I asked my mom to do a tutorial for peeling or she says skinning green bananas as there is a special technique for this.
Now for people outside of the Caribbean you may have to see if there is an exotic fruit section because the bananas I see overseas are not for cooking If you use a semi green eating banana it will not work and you will have this yucky sweet tasting crap! A green banana is void of sugar when you taste it It is not as plump as a regular eating banana
Mashed Green Banana 12 green bananas cooked ( DO NOT COOK IN THE SKIN DO NOT! JEREPETE DO NOT COOK IN SKIN) 1 can coconut milk except I like Valrico or the Thai brands I do not use Goya in my mash 1/2 cup onion 1 tsp salt
Method Cook bananas with the salt Strain Add onions and start to mash Gradually add coconut milk and mash until you have a creamy mashed potato consistency Mash smooth Cool for 15 minutes
Serve with TVP Stew and enjoy and get lost in this delicious mess of a recipe!
