Plantain FooFoo

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I tried my attempt at making Plantain Foofoo, but instead it turned out more like mashed plantain. LOL It's good but was wondering if you all had any tips or recipes on how to make plantain foofoo?


Fresh plantain fufu:

This recipe is excellent with meat.


A – 600gr plantain

B – 200gr Cassava


1 – In unsalted boiling water, cook A and B, peeled and sliced for about 15 to 20 minutes.

2 – Remove the pan from the heat, and let them cool down in the cooking liquid.

3 – Drain A and grind until smooth and free of any lumps then add B and mash until smooth.

You can also buy it as a flour in African specialty stores.

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Learned from a Spanish friend that here in the US, cassava is called Yuca. Not sure which state you live in but you might want to try a spanish grocery store or like nigeriaorbust suggested save yourself the stress and buy a box from an African or nigerian food specialty store.

Cassava (the root) is also called "Tapioca" in the US and maybe Asia. There's no African food supply where we live, but fortunately there's a lady from Tonga (yeah, the Pacific island) who sells cassava root, plantain, cooking bananas... so we can get good fresh stuff.
