Like many root vegetables, malanga can be turned into a flavorful mash by peeling it, cutting it into chunks, and boiling it in water or broth. This mash has a subtle nutty quality all on its own, but I prefer it with a big kick of flavor, so I roast a head of garlic and add it to the mash. Serve the mashed malanga with a Caribbean-style vegetarian or meaty stew or as an accompaniment to grilled meats, especially jerk chicken or pork.
