One joy that I’ve found being on the AIP is discovering foods I never knew existed. Have you tried taro yet? It is a weird little vegetable, hairy like a kiwi, but once peeled, it resembles a potato. I can find them in my regular grocery store near the ginger, but the best taro I’ve found comes from our local Asian market.
Taro can be bland, so you’ll need to bump up the seasoning, hence this recipe! Choose medium-ish sized taro about this big:
They should feel like a potato in your hand, not light. If they feel light, they have gone bad, and are dried out. I once purchased six of these from my grocery store, and five of them were bad. Please avoid my fate. 😬
Don’t be afraid to try new things! Grab a few of these babies and see what happens. If your taro are smaller than this, you’ll need more than four.
A note about salt: as mentioned, taro needs a good amount of seasoning. The amount you will need for this recipe will depend on the size of your taro, and your personal preference. I used three teaspoons for this size taro, which was juuuuuuust about right, but maybe a little much. You know your tastes.
This recipe takes a while to accomplish, so I recommend serving them with something easy like burgers. 😁
OK, let’s go!
