For the Final Dish
For the Ice Cream:
In a medium-sized sauce pot, add the granulated sugar, sesame milk, sea salt, spiced rum, and vanilla extract. Set to medium heat and stir occasionally to avoid scolding the milk. Heat until all ingredients have dissolved, about 10 minutes.
Thoroughly chill the ice cream base in the refrigerator overnight or in an ice bath. Add the ice cream base to your favorite ice cream machine and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
For the Pan Sauce:
Start by peeling the bananas and cut in half length wise (hot dog-style) then trim into 3 large pieces for each banana half.
Next, bring a large skillet to medium heat and add the vegan butter. Once its melted, add the banana pieces cut side down.
Roast until the butter has slightly browned then add the brown sugar and rum. Flambe until the alcohol has burned off (be careful doing this indoors, we recommend having a pan cover on hand to quickly put out the flame if needed).
Once the flame has burned off, add the Hope and Sesame® Sesamemilk, and vanilla extract. Allow the sauce to reduce until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
For the Sesame Seed Brittle:
In a medium size skillet, add the sugar and water and heat on a medium low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Next add the sesame seeds and constantly stir until the sesame seeds are well-coated and look slightly toasted.
Quickly (be careful they burn quickly!) remove from the heat and transfer to a lined baking sheet. Allow to cool at room temperature until cool enough to handle and break into desired size pieces.
For the Final Dish:
Feel free to have fun and plate as desired! You can either plate individually or on a platter. We recommend about ⅛ of a cup of sesame seed brittle, 3 pieces of roasted banana, 3 Tbsp of banana foster sauce, about 3 luxardo cherries and 1 piece of mint per serving.
