Like grits in the American South, poi is a bland Hawaiian side dish that you serve plain and let people season with salt or pepper. Look for taro in the produce department with other tubers, or order from www.melissas.com.

How to Make It

Bring 2 quarts water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add taro; cook 40 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool 15 minutes. Peel; discard skin. Roughly chop taro. Place taro and 1 cup water in a blender; process until smooth. Add remaining 1/4 cup water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.
