Taro is like a potato that is boiled in a creamy white coconut milk solution. As it cooks, the coconut cream may curdle. This is good! Curdled coconut cream is very tasty.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A Non Secretor (0 beneficials)

  • Side Dish

  • taro root
  • water
  • coconut cream
  • sea salt (optional)

How to make it:
  1. Taro root should be carefully peeled (do not use water while peeling. when water mixes with the taro juices, it becomes a skin irritant which will cause your hands to have a slightly painful itch).
  2. When peeling is complete, cut them into chunks about 2 inches by 2 inches, more or less.
  3. Put them into a saucepan and fill with water. You can use your hands to swish them around and rub off any dirt that you may have gotten on them from the skin while you were peeling them.
  4. Wash your hands under running water and continue to rinse them until the slipperiness from the juices is gone. When done this way, there shouldn't be any itching.
  5. Now pour out the water.
  6. Take coconut milk (squeezed from freshly shredded coconut and water is best. Canned or coconut milk made from instant coconut powder also works) and pour it into the saucepan, enough to cover the taro.
  7. Add salt and boil like you would potatoes until done (firm but tender enough to stick a fork in them without making it fall apart.
