  Many years ago, restaurant dining meant fruit with every- thing. Now
  fruit is desperately passe. But it's a mistake to throw out the
  authentic with the spurious. This surprising but satisfying
  combination of ingredients originates in South America.
  In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and brown on all
  sides 1 kg cubed boneless pork. Add 2 large onions, chopped, and 2
  cloves of garlic, minced, and brown them. Add 3 large tomatoes,
  diced, 100 mL boiling water and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and
  cook very slowly for about 1 1/2 hour. Meanwhile simmer 1 1/2 cups
  brown lentils in 4 cups water for 45 minutes; do not drain.
  Add the undrained lentils to the pork mixture, combine well, cover
  and cook over a low heat for a further 30 minutes, until both the
  pork and the lentils are tender.
  Taste for seasoning. Add 4 large firm bananas cut into 2 cm pieces
  and 3 tablespoons or more of chopped, fresh coriander. Cook 10
  minutes longer. Serve with a little more coriander scat- tered on
  top. (You can use the coriander stems as well as the leaves, provided
  they are well washed. Finely chopped they add interesting crunch.)
