How to Make the Ultimate Umami-Bomb Vegetarian Demi-Glace
3 ripe bananas
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 ounces milk chocolate (preferably with nibs), chopped into 1/4-inch chunks
In a blender, puree the bananas with the milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in a heavy cream and milk chocolate.
