Pau Farreny J., a Spain-based cook and food waste fighter is back again this week with more use-it-up inspiration. This time, he’s sharing his recipe for Overripe Banana Pancakes. Here’s another reason to love your very brown bananas!
Check out the recipe below! And if you find yourself in Spain’s Catalonia region, look up Espigoladors, an organization Pau works for that rescues food at risk of being thrown away, offers cooking classes for stretching ingredients and otherwise helps feed those in need while fighting the environmental consequences of food waste.
Pau tells me that in the Catalan language a mother might call her family to the table by saying:
A la taula i al llit, al primer crit.
That roughly translates to “to the table and to the bed, come when you’re first called.” It sounds more elegant in Catalan, but the point is, no one wants to be late to breakfast when these pancakes are on offer!
Thanks for sharing your recipe, Pau!
