Also spelled foofoo or foufou, fufu in its many variations is a staple in western and central Africa. Traditionally, it would be made by pounding - pounding, not mashing - the boiled tubers or plantains. This version offers a modern shortcut using the food processor. Use whatever proportions of starch suit your taste. Half yam (not sweet potato) and half green plantain might be a good starting point. Serve with soup, stew, or cooked vegetables.
