Also known as taro root, this potato-like veg is one of Mqwebu’s favourites and fea­tures through­out her cook­book. The fi­brous, hairy skin is peeled, leav­ing a white-ish in­side that’s got a rich, nutty taste. GOOD FOR: The leaves and root can be eaten when cooked and it’s high in fi­bre, mag­ne­sium, potas­sium and vi­ta­min E. It’s good for pro­mot­ing heart health and boost­ing im­mu­nity. USE I T: In place of potato in sal­ads or gnoc­chi or cur­ries. To cook, boil in hot wa­ter as you would potato, then wait to cool down, peel and pre­pare.
