I found myself in quite a food state this week….
The other day, I was dreaming of eating some amazing oatmeal with sliced bananas…and I recently went to the store to buy said banana.
The banana was green as hell….but I prayed against hope that it would slowly turn an edible yellow overnight.
News flash: it didn’t.
I was desperate. What is an oatmeal without it’s sliced bananas?!
So, I decided to try one trick that I heard whispers about…..ripening my green-ass banana in the microwave….
I tested this theory out….and was rather surprised with the result.
You can in fact ripen a banana in the microwave!
Here is my entire process I followed:
- Step 1: Peel the Banana (not as easy as it sounds, mind you)
- Step 2: Cut the Banana into Coins
- Step 3: Microwave in a (microwave-safe) bowl for 2 minutes
Add cinnamon and eat 🙂
The consistency and taste of what once was a green banana is ….surprising to say the least.
The taste almost reminds me of a warm soft pretzel (like Auntie Anne’s)…and with that cinnamon on top…I was swimming in mouth feel.
So there you have it. You can do it.
Microwave all the bananas!
