“Whole foods” isn’t just the name of a supermarket behemoth. For some cooks, it’s their cooking philosophy, as they try to find uses for every part of the fruits and vegetables in their kitchen.

One surprising, and surprisingly good, example of whole-food cooking is banana bread made with unpeeled bananas. Whole-banana bread, and other recipes that incorporate banana peels, show that banana peels have a usefulness beyond being a prop for slapstick jokes.
