I love bananas. It IS the food of Eastern Rwanda, where I spent so much of my time while a volunteer. And even since being in Kigali, I’ve continued to cook the stuff. A couple weeks ago, our helper around the house taught me her method to her recipe. I have always loved cooking them, but every Rwandan does it a little differently. Here’s her approach. Oh, and they are frickin’ delicious.
What you need
4-5 bananas per person eating
3 beautiful red tomatoes
3 small eggplants
1 green pepper
2 medium sized onions (I believe you can never have enough onion!)
Hi! I'm Heather. I am a writer and counselor in-training. I share stories so we can keep the magic of being human alive. I spend a great deal of time going on long walks with my wife, rollerblading, learning, and traveling to find new adventures. By day, I work as an Education and Employment Specialist for Jefferson Center for Mental Health, working with adolescents who have experienced their first episode of psychosis. A Colorado native, I love dark-roasted coffee, sunshine, and succulents. Enthusiasm, passion, and possibility: that's me at my best.
