Nutritional values

Banana blossoms are not edible, but highly decorative and here they are filled with a refined mixture of lean poultry and exotic spices. Just the right thing if you have an appetite and don't want to put a big strain on your calorie account.

You're not getting a banana blossom? Too bad, but still no problem: Instead, just take large leaves of light or red chicory; you can even eat them with you.
