Bananas Skins with Black-Eyed Peas
Juice of one lime
1 teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon mustard seeds
2 teaspoons coconut oil
4 green banana peels
½ c black-eyed peas (if using fresh, soak overnight)
2 tablespoons unsweetened grated coconut
Cut the peels into small slices and boil in water with turmeric and pinch of salt. To prevent sap from sticking to your pot, add a several drops of oil to the water. Bring to a boil, and then simmer until skins are tender. After that drain, and keep the water for a later use (we like to use it to cook rice or as a base for soup).
If using fresh black-eyed peas, boil until tender. If using canned, rinse and drain beans.
Heat coconut oil in frying pan or skillet on medium heat. Add mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop.
Add boiled black-eyed peas and peels , stir, and cook for about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Add salt to taste and finish with lime juice. Serve.
Green or yellow banana peel?
Cancer fighting characteristics are more existing in ripe bananas and they can help your body produce white blood cells.
But if you want to lose weight, green peels are better because they have more probiotics. Probiotics help in improving the digestive health. Plus, it has been proven that green peels raises the levels of dopamine and serotonin.
Maybe it would be hard for you to eat the peel, but there are some ways you can do that.
For example, you can use it in a smoothie. Throw away both ends of the peel and put it in a blender, adding some ice, cinnamon, coconut milk, or any other ingredient you like. If you choose this procedure, use yellow peels because they have a banana flavor and are sweeter.
You can also consume ripe bananas in tea. To prepare the tea, throw away the ends and boil the peel in a pot for about 15 minutes. Strain it and enjoy in your banana tea. If you want your tea sweeter, add a small amount of honey.
But, green bananas are better for cooking. You can use green banana peels to prepare curries or chutney, or even use them instead of potatoes. The only thing you need is being creative. Feel free to get creative.
