Eat Something New – Week III: Halva … In a Turkish Banana Dessert!

HalvaPic by Franzi.

Week three of my monthly challenge to eat something new. This time I went into an organic grocery store and found a package of  … halva! That’s a speciality of sesame and honey, which (I at least never ate knowingly &) can be eaten pure or used to prepare some delicious desserts. Thankfully, there was a recipe idea inside the packing: Turkish Banana Dessert! It was easy-peasy made and tasted like a heavy (sweet) banana milk! I ate way to much of this sweet treat … just couldn’t stop myself 😉

Recipe: Serves 4.

Ingredients: 75 g halva, juice from one lemon, 2 bananas, 250 ml heavy cream (whipped).

Preparation: Crush the halva with a fork. Gently blend with bananas, cream and lemon juice. Garnish with some banana slices.

Enjoy!

Those were the new dishes/ingredients I ate in week I and II: Smoked salt in a veggie burger, grains of paradise in chilli!

  1. Wow – I didn’t realize there were recipies with halva. I strongly recommend you not to start eating it pure – it’s pretty addictive I think…

  2. By the way, I thought of some stuff for you to try – unless you already know’em 🙂
    – Kimchi (you’ll find it in Asian supermarkets, I personally love it)
    – Mangosteen (might be hard to find as it’s a seasonal food)
    – Durian (I mean fresh ones 🙂 )
    – black rice pudding
    – Habanero chillis – just kidding 😉

    1. Wow, thanks for all your tips… Kimchi I already know. But I will try the Durian and the Mangosteen if I find them somewhere!
