Eating banana peels is more than some eco-conscious try—these things have some genuinely wonderful weight reduction advantages. Also, truly, it is not as odd as it sounds.

 Bananas Skins with Black-Eyed Peas :

4 green banana peels; 1 teaspoon turmeric ; Salt ; 2 teaspoons coconut oil; ½ c black-eyed peas (if using fresh, soak overnight); ½ teaspoon mustard seeds; 2 tablespoons unsweetened grated coconut; Juice of one lime.

  1. Chop peels into small pieces and boil in water with turmeric and dash of salt. To prevent sap from sticking to your pot, add a few drops of oil to the water. Bring to a boil, and then simmer until skins are tender. Drain, reserving water for a later use (we like to use it to cook rice or as a base for soup).
  2. If using fresh black-eyed peas, boil until tender. If using canned, rinse and drain beans.
  3. Heat coconut oil in skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop.

Add boiled peels and black-eyed peas, stir, and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Add salt to taste and finish with lime juice. Serve.
