Banana Bags

This recipe for Banana Bags has been reproduced courtesy of Qbag. So who or what is Qbag?

Qbag provides the ideal solution for healthy and convenient cooking. It allows you to cook a wide range of dishes in the traditional en papillote style in a conventional oven and on a BBQ.

Barbecue cooking is a favourite pastime, but cooking different foods on a BBQ side by side (such as burgers, sausages, chicken, vegetables, fish and fruit) can be a problem. Qbag is the ideal solution as the aluminium foil cooking bags are able to withstand the direct heat on a barbecue and allow you to cook meat, fish and vegetarian recipes next to each other without the transfer of flavours. Qbag is perfect for the gourmet cook, vegetarian / vegan, those with a caravan or people who enjoy camping.

Qbag locks in the flavours of your favourite food by retaining its moisture and succulence whilst cooking on a BBQ or in a conventional oven. The window, which also helps your food breathe, lets you keep an eye on the dish whilst it's cooking and you can peel it back to add ingredients, stir or even have a quick taste.
