I read about this side dish on another site and was intrigued. I had never heard of this combination before, you see. When I googled for the recipe, I got two versions, the one below which is from vegweb.com, and a much simpler one, which, I confess, is the one I tried. For this version you peel a banana and mash it in a bowl with a fork or potato masher. (You can soften the banana in the microwave by heating it for 20 seconds, if needed.) Add a can of applesauce to the mashed banana. You can puree the mixture or simply mash it with the potato masher which will usually get the mixture smooth.
