Nadiya Hussain has shared her top tips on how to cook without waste during the coronavirus lock-down, including eating the peel of the banana. 

The Great British Bake Off winner, 35, from London, appeared on Good Morning Britain today alongside Reverend Richard Coles, 58, and Matthew Burton, 37, to offer their advice on how to cope with isolation. 

Chef Nadiya revealed she’s been avoiding waste by making soup out of potato peelings and the ends of vegetables, and has even been using the skin of bananas as a burger filling, which she insists tastes like ‘pulled pork or chicken’. 

Twitter users were divided over the recipe, with some insisting their ‘mind was blown’ and they were ‘interested’ in trying out the quirky recipe, while others said they would rather ‘deep fry the soles of my shoes’.

The mother-of-three said: ‘Yes I’ve been cooking banana peel forever. We’ve always been cooking banana peel.  

‘It’s something completely natural to me, and I thought to myself “Hold on a second, you need to share this”. 

Because you literally use ripe banana peel you would use when making banana bread, and everyone is making banana bread at the moment. 

Don’t chuck the peel away, cook it up with some onion, garlic, some bbq sauce, stick it in a burger and you have pulled pork, pulled chicken.’ 

Viewers were baffled by the recipe, with one admitting they 'genuinely didn’t know you could eat banana skins' while another called the dish an 'interesting concept'

However some weren't as convinced on the recipe, with one dubious user guessing the dish would be similar to pulled pork, while another simply said 'no thank you' to the meal

As well as banana skin burgers, the mother makes ‘scrap soup’ made of the ends of vegetables and potato peels, and urged the public to ‘change the way we think about food’. 

She said: ‘What we have to do is not worry about cooking these amazing meals and shift the way we think about food and waste. 

‘Think about what we would normally put in a compost bin and think, what can we do with it? 

‘That’s what we’re doing, I’m using social media as a tool. We’re making scrap soup, putting potato peels and all the ends in a big freezer bag. 

‘I think we need to stop and think about what we’re throwing away and think about how we can use it.’ 

Viewers were baffled by the recipe, with one admitting they ‘genuinely didn’t know you could eat banana skins’ while another called the dish an ‘interesting concept’. 

‘@BegumNadiya says you can eat banana skin cook it with onion,garlic and BBQ sauce and put it in a burger it’s like pulled pork #mindblown’, said one. 

Another added: ‘Pulled bbq Banana peel relish…interesting concept from Nadya there.’

‘Genuinely didn’t know you could eat banana skins!’, said a third.
