Bananas foster is an all-time great dessert, and sous vide takes it to the next level! You will first need to make a rum sauce (be sure to bring it to a boil as described in order to remove most the alcohol) to use with this meal.

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 25 mins

Hi Anjelika,

We have not personally tried this recipe with plantains, however, if you do decide to try it with plantains, it won’t be as sweet as plantains have more of a mild taste and not as sweet.

Hope this helps!

Looks delicious and very easy to veganize by swapping out the butter for Earth Balance or Miyoko’s Butter.
