Sweet Potato and Plantain Pottage Recipe

Finally I’m posting a recipe. It’s a Sweet potato and plantain pottage recipe. I realize that most people already know how to make this, but it’s possible I may make mine a little different, so in case any one is interested…


2  Cooking spoons Palm Oil

3  Small bulbs of Onions

1   Handful of Tomatoes

2  Fresh pepper (or as desired)

4  Medium sized Sweet Potatoes (Cut into medium chunks)

4  Fingers of Plantain (Cubed)

Gizzard (as much as desired)

2  Tsps Garlic powder (or as desired)

2  Tsps Ginger powder (or as desired)

8  cubes of Knorr (I used chicken)

1  Tbsp Curry powder (or as desired)

2  Tsps Nutmeg powder (or as desired)

1  Tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Crayfish

Spinach ( as much as desired)



  1. Blend Tomatoes, 1 onion bulb and fresh peppers in a blender with a little water, set aside.
  2. Cook your gizzard, by adding some water, 1 onion bulb, garlic, ginger, knorr cubes, curry and nutmeg. Mix together and let cook till soft enough. When gizzard is cooked, chop up into cubes/pieces and set aside (Be sure to keep the stock).
  3. In a large pot, heat up 1 spoon of palm oil, fry 1 bulb of onions then add the blended tomato mixture, leave to simmer for 3 minutes.
  4. Add some water to the pot, leave to boil for 5 minutes, then add your sweet potatoes, allow to boil for a bit, seeing as sweet potatoes take more time to soften than plantains.
  5. When the Sweet Potatoes are almost soft, add your plantains and leave to cook for about 5 minutes. While it’s cooking, add second spoon of palm oil, crayfish gizzard stock (this serves as your spices), gizzard and spinach.
  6. Leave to cook for 5 to 10 minutes. Add water where necessary and be sure to taste. If not as tasty as desired, add salt.
  7. Food is Ready.
