A banana blossom is a large, purple-skinned flower that grows at the end of a bunch of bananas. Its tightly packed petals are neutral in flavor but mimic the flaky texture of fish, making it an ideal whole-food substitute. Banana blossom has a neutral flavor, so it absorbs spices and seasonings very well. Try putting it in your next curry, stir fry, or dumplings, or soaking it in kombu to put in nori! Yum!
