GREEN FIG (GREEN BANANA) PIE

Most Trinis and Caribbean people love pies. Examples of some include macaroni pie and corn pie. In today’s blogpost, we’re going to make a delightful green fig (green banana) pie, an easy and delicious dish to put together.

Just to be clear, we refer to bananas as figs. I know many of you may know figs as the teardrop purple fruits but in this case we are really using green bananas or what we call green figs.

YIELD: 1 8×8 dish

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 lbs green fig/green banana
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated for topping
  • 1 tbsp butter/margarine
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 pimento, chopped
  • 1 tbsp green seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp JGM Products cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tsp JGM Products msg free all purpose seasoning

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Boil green figs until tender. You can peel them before boiling or you can boil them with the skin on.
  2. If you boiled with the skin, peel the figs once they are tender and place in a bowl. Mash them using a fork or a potato masher. You can mash to your liking. I prefer not to have too many chunks of green figs in the pie so I prefer mashing them up as much as possible.
  3. In a separate bowl combine all other ingredients listed above except the cheese to be used for the topping. Mix well.
  4. Add the mixture to the mashed green figs. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are properly incorporated.
  5. Add to a greased baking dish. Top with cheese.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  7. Let the pie cool before cutting.
  8. Enjoy your green fig or green banana pie

I hope you guys try this recipe! It’s another delicious Caribbean dish that you will love.
