Method

  1. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic.
  2. Melt the butter or oil in a frying pan over
 a medium heat.
  3. Add the onion and cook 
for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until 
soft.
  4. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 more minute, then add the cassava meal.
  5. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 10 minutes, until it is lightly golden brown and resembles toasted breadcrumbs. It’s best eaten immediately, but any leftovers can be reheated in a frying pan.
