Cassava Root Vegetable
Peel root and slice thin. Place in boiling water and cook about 15 minutes. OR roast cassava root like a potato – Wrap in foil and place in 350* for 45 minutes or 12 minutes in the microwave. BE CAREFUL THE ROOT IS VERY VERY WAXY AND THE WAX WILL MELT IN THE MICROWAVE!

Peanut Soup and Fufu
Steam a chicken breast with a sprinkle of curry powder, Adobo seasoning, salt, and ginger and garlic powder. In a stockpot melt 2 cups of peanut butter. Add 2 cups of water and stir very well. Bring to a boil and simmer about 15 minutes. Once the soup boils add ½ bag of spinach greens. Sever immediately with Fufu.

To Make the Fufu
Fufu is made with Plantain flour
Take 2 cups of plantain flour and in a heavy pan add flour and stir in boiling water a little at a time. Stir constantly. Add enough water until you get an oatmeal type of consistency. Serve on the side of the plate with soup. (This is almost like a dumpling.)
