What is matoke?

A staple food in the African diet, matoke is made from either steamed or boiled plantains that have been mashed and seasoned. I hear that when prepared well, they quite resemble whipped mashed potatoes. Sounds good, right? I sure hope so! I’ll give you the full African food report upon my return.

Until then … be well, eat well.

  1. Matoke definitely does not taste like mash potatoes. I hope you liked them a lot better than I did!!

  2. Justin, I quite liked the matoke - but only when well prepared. I tried the whole range and when it's bad, it's really bad.
