Casava! This plant has deep roots that tasted a bit like a potato? The leaves from the bush are also very nutritous. This plant is being introduced into the area. It can be ground to make brown Nshima, which is a staple food in Zambia that is like a pattie of cream of wheat. The nshima ( pronounced sheema) that we had was made from cornmeal.
