I've been hearing all the hype about this fruit and was delighted to see that my Asian market has started to carry it frozen. They had it shelled in packages and the whole fruit. I've since become addicted to it. I've tried the smoothie recipes adding banana and fruit to it, but to me it dilutes the sweet custardy texture and just tastes like I added some garlic to my smoothie - personally would personally rather eat it by itself. However, it does have the garlicy sweet flavor to it, so I did a search for savory recipes and came up short. I created this recipe by thinking that with the sweet garlic flavor, all it needed was a dash of sour and a little savory to make a soup. I don't think the coconut is necessary, but I had one that needed to be used.
I absolutely love durian. This recipe would be good as a pudding, make it thicker for an icing or freeze for an ice cream. I’m not sure if the spinach adds to the flavour, I originally added it for additional nutrition and I haven’t tried it without it yet.
Inspired by Shazzie’s recipe “The Great Glass Elevator”.
Enjoy! But don’t eat before a job interview or a first date . . .
