This fermented fufu recipe makes a delectable dumpling that originated from West & Central Africa. You can add these vegan dumplings into a wide-range of soup recipes.
Fufu can be made from cassava, yams, or plantains — which is boiled, pounded, and formed into a ball. The traditional way of creating fufu is by pounding using a large mortar and pestle. But today, you can just use a food processor. This is a much easier way to create these dumplings.
Cubans and Jamaicans have their tweak for Fufu recipes — they add animal fats like butter and bacon to elevate this simple dumpling.
