Matokè is a native fruit of Africa. Typically yellow, this starchy banana-like fruit is carb rich. Naturally sense and heavier than bananas, it has a harder texture which makes it unsuitable to eat raw. Cooked, however, matoke is a delicious, albeit shorter, version of its long-limbed sister, plantain.



Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 (snack) servings

Ingredients
2 matokè
Tsp fresh ginger
1 rosemary sprig
Tblsp olive oil



Method
Slice the matokè into strips.



Place the matokè on a greased piece of foil and baking parchment and place under the grill for 10 minutes at a low heat.



Grate the ginger.



Halfway through cooking remove the matokè from the oven, turn over and season with the rosemary and ginger



Place back under the grill for 5 minutes, turning over twice.



Remove the matokè from under the grill and serve.



It makes a wonderful, fibrous and healthy snack. The ginger adds much-required bite to the caramelised matokè, I’ve only grated a little bit, but feel free to add more.

It perfumes the kitchen with a sweet yet savoury flavour. Think banana loaf with a rosemary accent.
