Stewed Taro Leaves Recipe | Brede Songe Touffé


Stewed taro leaves is a classic Mauritian recipe. Leaves of the taro plant are cooked over a long period of time with light spices, tomatoes and tamarind. The result is a creamy silky texture that is really unlike any other greens. Nothing speaks home louder than greens prepared the traditional way.

Eggplant Fritters | Gluten-free + Vegan


Similar to Indian pakoras or Japanese tempuras, Chinese eggplant fritters are popular Mauritian snacks that are sold at street corners.

The recipe is very simple. My preference for the batter is chickpea flour but all-purpose flour (or a mix of both flours) also works well.
