Bananas, Saba Cooking

Bananas, Saba Cooking
(Bananas, Saba Cooking) Saba or cooking bananas, a variety of bananas from the Philippines, are usually sold "green" or when the just begin to turn greenish-yellow, which means that the bananas are mostly starch, but if they are left out to ripen, as those in the photo above, they become sweet as the starch converts to sugar; however, they are not as sweet as the regular eating bananas. This is the reason that saba or cooking bananas are usually cooked in various recipes, much like plantains. In fact, saba or cooking bananas and plantains can be substituted for each other in any recipe. Saba or cooking bananas are about 1/2 the size of plantains. We could not find any specific nutritional information for saba or cooking bananas.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
