1

Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato into wedges, then place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the Aussie spice blend. Toss to coat, spread out evenly, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.

TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide between two trays.

2

While the wedges are baking, roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Drain the sweetcorn (see ingredients). Drain and rinse the banana blossom, then pat dry with paper towel and cut in half.

3

In a shallow bowl, combine the plain flour, the water and Louisiana spice blend. In a second shallow bowl, place the panko breadcrumbs. Dip the banana blossom in the flour mixture, followed by the panko breadcrumbs. Transfer to a plate.

4

Heat a large frying pan over a high heat. Cook the sweetcorn, tossing, until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the baby spinach, slaw mix and 1/2 the plant-based aioli to the charred corn. Season.

TIP: Cover the pan with a lid if the corn kernels are “popping” out.

5

When the wedges have 10 minutes cook time remaining, return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with enough olive oil to cover the base. Cook the crumbed banana blossom in batches until golden and cooked through, 2-3 minutes each side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

TIP: Add extra oil if needed so the banana blossom does not stick to the pan.

6

Divide the crumbed banana blossom, spiced wedges and rainbow slaw between plates. Serve with the remaining aioli.
