Tanai's mighty and awesome tuna stew

I was inspired today and decided to create a new delicacy never seen before in the history of mankind and womankind. Tuna stew Colombian style. Easy to make and infinitely delicious. It is possible that after eating this magnificent dish the eater will cry of happiness deeply touched by the gorgeous taste of this stew.

Ingredients for 4 or 5 persons:

500 grams of tuna fillets
2 tomatoes
1 onion
1 big carrot
Half large red pepper
1 cassava (yuca), say about 300 grams
1 plantain, the green one
1 coconut or a small can of coconut milk
Ginger powder
1 liter of water


1. You should either make the coconut milk or buy it ready to use. If you want to make it yourself, cut the coconut soft white flesh into pieces and liquify them in a blender on a bit of water; then with a sieve, separate the coconut residues from the milk.

2. Cut the plantain, cassava, tomatoes, onion, carrot, and red pepper into small pieces; boil them in water and coconut milk on a pot until the cassava and plantain are soft to the bite. Add a tea spoon of salt and ginger powder.

3. Add the tuna to the pot and let it boil for another 20 minutes.

4. Serve with a plate of white rice on the side.

Now you're ready to enjoy Tanai's mighty and awesome tuna stew and experience true happiness.
