Adobong Puso ng Saging is a Filipino vegetable dish made with banana bud/blossom cooked in soy sauce and vinegar
It was Valentines yesterday so were cooking some hearts, banana hearts 🙂 Belated Happy Valentines guys. Anyways enough with the cheeky intro lets start with the business. A colleague of mine who is also my banana bud (puso ng saging) supplier surprised me again with a good piece of it and she has been supplying it ever since she knew that Filipinos eat them, since then I already posted two puso ng saging recipe one is kilawin, another one is ginataan, I even used some on Kare Kare before.
Is it quite surprising for you to find out this part of banana is edible? Well be surprised even more because I only knew this recently that the banana trunk edible as well and it is used in other South East Asian cuisine like this Khmer style chicken curry and this Burmese noodle soup. This means the whole banana tree can be used for preparing food.
Have you tried using banana bud in your dishes apart from the ones I mentioned above? If yes, please share the recipe so we can try it here at Ang Sarap.
Such an interesting dish! I’ve never had anything quite like this. Don’t think I’ve ever made anything with a banana bud before — neat dish. Thanks!
Cool! I’ve never heard of banana bud. What does it taste like? What’s the texture like?
Would love to try. We may have this in our ethnic cuisine but I have never tried.
Nice, looks yummy!!! I will try it once I get home.
Very interesting and delicious adobong puso ng saging. Thank you so much.
