Delicious snack: banana pancakes with passion fruit butter

  1. First, prepare the passion fruit butter: Halve five fruits, scoop out the pulp with a spoon and bring it to a boil in a small saucepan. Let it simmer for about two minutes and then remove the pot from the stove. Using a whisk, beat in 80 grams of diced butter until you get a smooth, homogeneous mass.
  2. For the dough, mix 180 grams of flour, 20 grams of sugar, a little salt, a teaspoon of baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. In a second bowl, whisk together 250ml buttermilk, 80ml milk, one egg, and 20g melted butter, and add the dry ingredients. When the batter is smooth, fold in three more bananas, mashed with a fork.
  3. Fry the pancakes in a pan with some vegetable oil until they turn golden brown. Serve the finished pancakes with the passion fruit butter.

Healthy main course: fried zander fillet with passion fruit lentils and pak choi

The quantities are for two servings.

  1. Peel and finely dice two shallots and one clove of garlic. Halve a small chili, remove the seeds and finely chop.
  2. In a pan with oil, sweat the shallots and garlic, add a teaspoon of sugar, and let everything caramelize. Then add 120 grams of black lentils and deglaze with 300 ml of vegetable stock. Everything should now simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  3. Next, halve two passion fruits and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Wash and dry three small pak choi before cutting in half lengthways. In addition, wash and dry two sprigs of rosemary and cut it into large pieces.
  4. Now wash and pat dry two Zanderfilts (skinless). You will also need two more garlic cloves, which you peel and press. Fry the fish in a pan with a little oil on one side for about three minutes and then add the garlic, rosemary, and 30 grams of butter. Turn the fish carefully to avoid falling apart and season with a little salt. Cover and let the fillets simmer for about 7 minutes over low heat.

  6. Finally, stir 30 grams of butter and the passion fruit pulp into the lentils and season with light balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  7. Now you can serve and enjoy the zander fillet with pak choi halves and lentils.
