Aside from the usual ginisang puso ng saging, these banana blossoms are now incorporated to more and more usual dishes like burgers, meatballs and many more. It can be used in a lot of vegetable dishes or use as a meat alternative, as used in this recipe.
I have some vegetarian friends from which I learn new veggie ideas. One of the dishes is this banana blossom patties. I really like preparing veggie dishes especially for my nieces and nephews. They all eat vegetables but they some of them were picky eaters in some occasions especially when not familiar with the food.
We have some banana plants outside our backyard, and our banana blossoms are simply harvested rather than bought from the market. No dish is better than one prepared from freshly-harvested ingredients. Harvest time for banana blossom is rare so I prepare banana blossom dishes only when it is available.
I served ginisang puso ng saging once to my nieces and nephews but they only ate a little. So for the next banana blossom harvest time, I made sure to make them eat and enjoy a lot of banana blossoms. One of my vegetarian friends told me to hide the blossoms in a patty and serve them as a burger. And with that idea, I came into this recipe.
I served my banana blossom patties to my nieces and nephews and they didn’t even notice the taste difference. One of them even added two patties in his burger! If your child is a picky eater or simply do not want to eat vegetables, using this recipe is a great hack.
HOW TO MAKE PUSO NG SAGING PATTIES
Making puso ng saging patties is very easy. All you needed to do is to prepare the banana heart and fingers and the rest of the steps are smooth. To prepare the banana blossom, start by cutting the ends near the stalk. Also, remove the red layers. These are the matured ones. They are not advisable to use since they are dry and a bit chewy when cooked.
While removing the red layers, you might notice some small banana fingers. Do you know that these are super baby bananas? Yes! These are what your favorite bananas look like before they grow into the yellow ripe fruit you know. You can include these banana fingers in the patties or use them in other dishes like paksiw.
Once you have reached the white layers or the young part of the banana blossom, remove the core. This will much be easier when you slice the blossom into quarters to reveal the core. Simply slice the core out and your banana blossom is done. Banana blossoms darken quickly so make sure to soak them in water while cutting.
Boil these banana blossoms and fingers. Then, chop them into small bits. If you’re dealing with a large batch, I suggest using an easy chopper to make things easier and faster.
After this step, you may use the bits like any other ingredient of a regular patty. Take note to squeeze the liquid out of the bits before using so your patty mixture will not be flowy. To make the patties, simply combine all ingredients into a bowl and then fry them in small patties. Your fried puso ng saging patties is done. Enjoy your banana blossom patties with a bed of hot steaming rice. Make sure to serve a dipping sauce on the side!
I like these patties best in burgers. To make a banana blossom burger, simply toast a big bun and arrange some fresh tomatoes, lettuce and onions in it. Add your banana blossom patties and your burger is done! You can make as many layers as you want! Banana blossom burger tower sounds really great!
