Sautéed Bananas With Spiced Yogurt Topping

Submitted by: EARTHDROPLET

Introduction

This is best made with firm yellow bananas. They should not be green or they won't have full flavor, and they shouldn't be speckled with brown or they'll be too soft. This is our light take on the classic dessert Bananas Foster. This is best made with firm yellow bananas.

Ingredients

    Ingredients:
    Topping
    2/3 cup light vanilla yogurt
    Pinch of ground cinnamon
    Pinch of ground ginger
    Pinch of ground nutmeg

    Bananas
    4 small ripe bananas
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons orange juice

Directions

To make the topping:
In a small bowl, mix the yogurt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

To make the bananas:
Peel the bananas and cut them in half crosswise and then lengthwise to make 16 pieces. Cut out any brown spots.

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the bananas cut side down and cook without turning for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden. Turn, sprinkle with the brown sugar, and cook for 1 minute. Drizzle the orange juice into the pan and over the bananas. Cook, shaking the pan to mix the orange juice with the pan drippings, for 1 to 2 minutes more, until the bananas are lightly browned on the underside.

With a spatula, remove the bananas from the pan, placing 4 pieces each on 4 dessert plates. Spoon the pan juices over and top each with some of the spiced yogurt. Serve right away.
