A tuber that is sometimes confused with Taro because of similar characteristics. Malanga can range anywhere from ½ to 2 pounds in weight. This crunchy, juicy root has a rough brown coat and a crisp, colorful flesh that is beige, yellow or reddish in color. Popular in Cuba and Puerto Rico, Malanga has a taste and texture all its own. Once cooked, this crisp tuber takes on a smooth, nutty flavor. An excellent addition to soups and stews, Malanga can also be shredded and used in a similar manner as a potato. This recipe for Pan Fried Malanga Cakes is a good introduction to this delicious Specialty Produce.
