Breadfruit with Coconut Milk
Breadfruit, a large fruit with a starchy texture much like a potato, is popular in tropical countries around the world but can be tough to find in the U.S. outside of Hawaii. We used cassava in the photo, which is easier to find in fresh or frozen varieties.
What you'll need
1 Breadfruit unripe or 2 pounds Cassava thawed if frozen
1.Peel breadfruit, and cut into large wedges.
2.Place in a large pot. Add salt and then enough water to cover the breadfruit. Bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, 10 to 20 minutes.
3.Using a slotted spoon, transfer carefully to a shallow dish; discard the water. Drizzle with coconut milk while still warm.
- When working with unripe breadfruit, coat your knife and the cutting board with vegetable oil to prevent them from sticking to the fruits natural sap.
