We know it might sound odd at first, we were also dubious about how it would taste, but this is genuinely an easy, flavoursome, vegan and zero waste alternative to actual bacon.
The ‘bacon’ goes super crispy and has a smoky charred flavour which we love, it’s also a great way to use up the skins you’d normally throw away. It works best with very ripe bananas (when they have brown spots) so if you are baking or freezing your ripe bananas you can use the peel too and completely avoid any food waste.
Again, we know this might not sound like THE most obviously delicious bacon alternative and don’t get us wrong, we really love the ‘fake meat’ kind, but this banana peel bacon really is good and is incredibly easy. You can add it to loads of meals like salads and pasta, we even made it for the veggie breakfast that you can find on our instagram page. We can tell you‘re intrigued so give it a go and let us know what you think!
*We have read that banana peel is not suitable to eat for people with a latex allergy so if that’s you, please look into this or avoid the recipe completely!
