Ingredients:
3 green or yellow plantains
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
Water for boiling

Directions:
In a large pot place the peeled and evenly cut plantains and cassava and cover with water.  Boil until soft about 20 minutes. Place the salt, flour, plantains and cassava in a mixer and knead until the consistency of soft dough is achieved. Foufou should be much stiffer than mashed potatoes in texture.
