I have been trying out the Perfect Health Diet's recommendation of starch intake. I wanted to try taro and went to an Asian grocery store. I picked up a four pound corm of taro. (They also had smaller corms of taro, but the clerk suggested I get a bigger one). Similar to the one pictured here: http://reddragoncoltd.trustpass.alibaba.com/product/106208291-101365058/big_taro_root.html

Any suggestions on how to cook it?

Really? I thought with the toxin or whatever load that Taro required more cooking than this. I'm always reluctant to buy it at the one place byme that carries it for that reason. Thanks for the info.

Easy to do at home. Cook up some bacon, leave the grease in the pan, fry up slices of taro. Amazing deliciousness in no time!

Peel it with a potato peeler, slice it, and cook it like you would a potato: roasted, stir fried, mashed, baked. You can also steam it. I throw some taro in braised or curried meats, as an alternative to starchy vegetables like carrots/potatoes. Cook it thoroughly to decrease toxicity: taro contains oxalates, you may want to check how your body reacts before eating too much and/or too often. Personally, I had no problem at all, but I seldom eat it. Bon appetit!

Roasted taro and Chinese short ribs are a match made in paleo heaven.

Paleo Taro - Boil Taro till cooked through - Empty water - add onions - add coconut cream

let it simmer for 5-10mins on very low heat then serve
