This is a very good dish. It is Ghanaian, and it tastes very well with steaming groundnut soup on top of it.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Place the cassava and plantains (with peels on) into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until cassava is soft, about 30 minutes; drain. Remove and discard peels from plantains, and return them to the pot. Mash with butter, then beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Use as much butter as needed to get the mixture moist enough to blend.

You can typically use peanuts in a recipe that calls for groundnuts.

Very interesting exotic taste. Wish I knew what groundnut is. Wikipedia lists many different plants called groundnut.

Groundnut generally refers to peanuts or Housa groundnuts but peanuts work wherever a recipe calls for groundnuts.

Groundnut soup refers to egusi soup which is commonly eaten with fufu in Africa. I've also eaten it with African spinach stew.
