This is a standard Puerto Rican dish and is very easy to prepare. I named the recipe after my friend Jesus Rosario because he taught me how to make it. This is an especially great recipe for those of you in tropical countries or living near banana plantations. For the rest of you, you can substitute potatoes.
• Green (raw) bananas (can substitute yucca/mandioca or potatoes)
• Bay leaves
• Oregano (fresh or dried)
• Olive oil
Use a sharp knife to cut the peel off the bananas. Cut them into large chunks and then boil them until they’re soft like potatoes. Put them in a bowl and toss them with bay leaves, oregano, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature. They’re so delicious they’ll have you screaming “Thank you Jesus!”
