Ever want to buy something at the grocery store just because the package is so freakin’ awesome? I do all the time! Fufu is a West and Central African staple made from starchy vegetables like Cassava and Yams or Plantain (which is actually a fruit). They pound the living day lights out of it to make something that kind of looks like bread – and is used is in a similar way – you rip a bit off and dunk it in your soup or stew. Sounds delicious. Oh oh think I might be making some Peanut Stew and Fufu soon.
