GB is commonly known in Liberia and famous among the Gio and Manor tribes from Nimba. GB is made from cassava and similar to figure, but a bit harder or thicker. For this meal, I substituted the GB with plantain (fufu). Although I am not from the Gio or Manor tribe, I like to try all Liberian meals, so let’s give it a try! Total Prep Time: 40mins. Serving: 7-10 serving. Cook Time: 60-90 minutes. INGREDIENTS • Various fish and meat of your choice •4-6 hot pepper (spicy) or you can cut it down if you’re not into hot and spicy food unlike me I like it spicy and hot. • African bitter balls • Tola /wholor

•Sesame seeds •Onion

SEASONING • 1 Tbsp of salt • 2 Tbsp black pepper. • 2 maggi crevette shrimp/ chicken buillon or maggi star crayfish/ Nigerian maggi. • 2 Knorr cubes. • 2 Tbsp of badia complete seasoning. • 2 Tbsp of lawry’s all purpose chicken seasoning.

Cooking Steps: Boil : Bitter ball/ sesame seeds separately and blend together. Fufu: Mix in water and cook for 12 minutes keep stirring throughout the process. Tip: Try to divide your seasoning in half; half for prepping and the other half for making the soup. This way you get to keep track of it and ensure you don’t exceed the required amount. Next, mix all your ingredients together and turn off your stove when putting in the Tola. Note: Keep stirring till you get the desired texture. Once you have that slippery and thick texture, you’re there! For a first timer, this came out amazing and I enjoyed trying this out. That’s what this cooking channel is all about.

Remember this is an ethnic food and cooked differently for different people. The texture depends on how slippery you like your GB. Thank you for supporting my passion for cooking.
