Banana Nut Terrine
I'm happy to add a new feature to the blog this month. The good people at Farm Sanctuary (if you feel like making a holiday donation, their link is on the right!) are putting together a cookbook, and I get to do some recipe testing...I have a few excellent looking recipes I can't wait to try out, the first of which is this lovely banana-nut terrine. I put it together yesterday, chilled it overnight, and breakfast was a real treat this morning. The interior is a sweet mixed-grain Kashi filling, with cinnamon and allspice and juicy raisins. Chilled bananas form the exterior, with toasted walnuts and a little maple syrup on top. If this is any indication, I'm going to have a hard time coming up with critiques for these recipes besides "mmmm." This was amazing.
