Recipe of Steamed Manioc (cassava) and plantain

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Manioc (cassava) Tubers 1000 Grams
Green Plantain Bananas. 1000 Grams


Cut the manioc root into large (10 cm long) chunks, then peel, making sure to remove the inner skin (just under the thick brown outer skin).
Using a large knife, split the chunks lengthwise into halves, or quarters for very big pieces.
Cut the plantains into three equal pieces, and peel (this can be a pain, but use a knife to get the peel off.
Alternately, you can steam the plantain then remove the peel).
Add the manioc and plantain to a large pot in a steamer basket, or directly on the bottom of the pot.
Add 2 cm of water in the pot, and bring to a medium simmer.
Cover and steam for 40 minutes, remove and pile on a platter.

Goes well with anything that you would normally serve potatoes or rice with, and is very inexpensive to make.
