Banana Peel Pulled "Meat"
Instead of tossing banana peels, why not go zero waste and use them to cook an amazing & plant-based dish? 

To make this Banana Peel Pulled "Meat" you will need: 

  • 7 banana peels⁣
  • Juice of 1 lemon⁣
  • 1 chopped red onion⁣
  • 1 clove garlic, minced⁣
  • 1 bay leave⁣
  • 1 chopped red pepper⁣
  • 1 green pepper chopped⁣
  • 1 grated carrot⁣
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder⁣
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika⁣
  • 1 teaspoon cumin⁣
  • 2 cups tomato paste⁣
  • 1 cup of water⁣
  • olive oil and salt⁣


1 - Scrape the white part from inside the banana, then cut into thin slices. Add the lemon juice and let rest while chopping the other ingredients.⁣

2 - In a pan, add the olive oil, onion, garlic, and bay leaf. Also the bell peppers, banana peels, and carrot.⁣

3 - Sauté for a few minutes, then add the seasonings. Add the tomato sauce and mix well.⁣

4 - Lower the heat and leave this tasty mix sitting for about 40 min on low heat for best results.⁣

- Letting garlic sit in water helps to peel them much easier.⁣
- The white parts of the banana are indigestible, take these parts out before cutting.⁣
- Banana peels can be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator, so you can store some and make this dish when you have enough.
