Vegan Caramelised banana with candied walnuts and lemon sorbet

We have been very blessed by Mark Hartstone, chef proprietor at La Fosse at Cranborne  for sending us a special vegan recipe to share with you.

The restaurant has a special vegan and vegetarian theme night coming up on 14th July, pop over to book your place.

Vegan Caramelised banana with candied walnuts and lemon sorbet

The great thing about this recipe is that it is almost entirely from store cupboard ingredients.

Other than the sorbet the dish can be put together whilst your dinner guests are digesting their main

course! The walnuts can be prepared in advance along with the sorbet, however the caramel on the

banana will dissolve into the fruit and therefore must be done at the very last minute.

You go and buy a packet of Lemsip to make you feel better.

Let’s look at those ingredients:

Some patients have been shown to have an upset stomach, severe abdominal cramping, and vomiting issues connected to taking this drug
Side-effects of guaifenesin include nausea, vomiting, formation of kidney stones, diarrhoea, dry mouth, chapped lips and constipation
