Cassava Leaf (1)
Cassava, also known as yuca, is an incredibly versatile root vegetable. It can be boiled, baked, steamed, grilled, fried, or mashed. Our recipe starts by grinding the cassava roots with protein-rich leaves. Next, we slowly simmer them with organic palm oil, hormone-free chicken, peppers, and spices until it simmers perfectly into our family’s favorite stew and is served over rice.
Kala in Liberia, Bofrot in Ghana, Beignet in Cameroon, Puff Puff in Nigeria. Whatever you call it, this simply fried dough is far from basic. AYO’s Puff Puff is made with organic ingredients and easy to enjoy any time of day plain, dusted with powdered sugar, scooped with a side of beans, or our personal favorited dunked in fresh pepper sauce.
