Hi guys today I’m making Caramelised Bananas & Bacon on a bed of Sweetcorn, Spring Onion and Cottage Cheese sauce. Its quite simple to make it just requires a bit of prep. Cook some bacon. I use a George Forman grill but if you prefer you can cook it in a pan or oven. Then pick some ripe bananas.

If you have a super sweet tooth u can add a few drops of maple syrup here. Leave this on the side we’ll use these later.

Now this is down to personal preference but I do not like the lumps in cottage cheese so I blend it into a smooth paste but if you want you can keep it with lumps. I use my Vitamix.

Chop up your spring onions and Jalapeños as small as you want to. I chop them quite finely because I don’t like them chunky. Then mix these all together with the drained sweetcorn.

IMG_1377Mix the smooth cottage cheese with the vegetables and add salt and chilli depending on how spicy your chillies are and how hot you like it. Leave this aside.IMG_1387Heat a non stick frying pan and leave for a minute to heat up completely. Then place the bananas in the pan and leave to caramelise. Flip over after around a minute then turn of the heat and assemble.IMG_1389

I normally put the base underneath with the bananas and bacon on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon. If you fancy you can add a drizzle of maple syrup.
