Malanga, Black Bean and Pepper Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by fluffernutter

Malanga is a tropical root vegetable that is used like a potato and is especially delish in this salad. Unfortunately, it turns a drab shade of brown when boiled. The recipe is from The Purple Kiwi Cookbook by Frieda's (the fruit and vegetable importer). It's a fun, adventurous cookbook.
