here is my own little way of making ital from ground provision..
you can use any root food or ground provision cut into small pieces..

english potato
sweet potato
squash
yam
eddoes
dasheen
cassava
carrots
christophene
and the list goes onnnn

also add lentils, pigeon peas any pea, bean whatever of your choice. make sure u preboil those which take longer to cook than the roots would. and presoak those that need it!

place all these things (really its whatever u choose to have in your ital) in a big enough pot...crack open a can of coconut milk (or as much cans as needed dependin on how big the pot is) and add a can of water (use the same milk can filled with water) to it..(one can of milk to one can of water as a basic measurement)

you can add any herbs and spices u feel, or none at all..

allow this to boil and then when the milk is startin to evaporate and the roots become very soft til they start to fall apart, turn the stove down to a low low simmer..when the milk is barely covering the roots turn it off and cover the pot for about 10-15 mins.  

when u open it should be like a thick sauce, like soup...it is basically like a soup because u put all your favourites into it. i usually make steamed fish to go with mine.

season your fish if u so choose with herbs and spices...cut onions and green peppers up and place all in a shallow pot. cover and allow to cook for 30mins..fish makes its own water so u may only add a little.

there ya go! hope u guys enjoy this as much as i do! if it doesnt work let me know..i hope i wrote it clear enough

1.5 cups dried soya beans
water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3-6 tbsp maple syrup

In a large bowl, cover the soybeans in 6 cups of water.  Make sure they are completely covered.  Let them soak overnight.  After soaking drain out the excess water.
In a kettle or pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil.

In a blender or food processor, blend one third of the beans with one cup of boiling water until pureed.  Pour into a large stock pot and put it aside.  Repeat twice with remaining two thirds of the beans and add to stock pot.

Add 7 cups of cold water to the bean puree and slowly bring the mixture to a boil on medium heat, stirring continuously.  Once boiled , remove from heat immediately, cover with lid and set aside to cool.

Once cool enough to handle, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or metal strainer into a pot.  Discard the pulp.  Add the vanilla and syrup to the milk and cook for 30 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally, in a double boiler. (if you don't have a double boiler, you can use two different sized pots.  Put the milk in the smaller pot and water in the larger one.)  Transfer to a pitcher or container and refrigerate.  Stays fresh for 7 days.  MAkes 6 cups.
Enjoy in anything regular milk is good in.  
Many Blessings

Coconut Rice

4 cups rice
1 can coconut milk/cream
1/2 cup water
salt to taste

Wash the rice and then add all the ingredients. Bring to boil and then allow to simmer until all the liquid has evaporated and the rice is cooked. Finish, enjoy.
Can be eaten alone or with a sauce of your own liking.

*Alternative* : One can add raisins, some nuts (almonds and/or groundnuts) and an onion to the rice after it has cooked. In order to do so fry the onion and rice and then gradually add the rest and fry for about 5 - 10 minutes more.

One Love

Blessed RasTafari Love

I am a newbie on this site but one with endless love for His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, His I-loved Empress Menen and this I-laful trod, Rastafari.  I registered because I wanted to get in touch with the I-dren who calls the island of Anguilla home as this is also where I live.  I find it interesting that this site is what might bring together two people living on a tiny island.  However, somehow I got into the Ital sharing page and find it such a positive inclusion that I am moved to add a little bit.

Those who are making soy milk are well on the way to making tofu.  For tofu, just bring the milk to a slow boil and gradually add a curdling agent.  This can be lime juice.  Some ones like to add vinegar.  Do not be afraid to experiment.  You will notice the clumping beginning almost immediately and this will continue until there are large curds.  The liquid is the whey.  Do not throw anything away.  Here is how all the by-products can be used:

1.  The residue of beans from the milk can be seasoned to taste using a variety of fresh chopped herbs.  Add a small quantity of the milk and a little whole wheat flour or mashed potato (or other ground provision) to bind.  Combine all ingredients to form a stiff batter than can be dropped from a spoon and fried in a non-stick pan for a delicious savoury.  

2.  Remove the milk curds from the whey, put it in a muslin or any soft cloth, place in a strainer and place a weight on top to press so that all the liquid can be drained.  The result is tofu which will be soft or firm depending on the quality of the soy beans used and perhaps on the curdling agent.  I am no chef - learning by trial and error but with good results.

3.  The liquid whey from which the curd (tofu) has been removed, can be used as or added to shampoo as it makes a good conditioner.

One Perfect Love
Sister Empress

2 tsp ground cumin
2 teaspoons hungarian paprika

1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

Greetings.  
Yam is related to sweet potato. co=co is actually, at least to some islands, corn-meal that is cooked and either fried or baked. callaloo is greens.  if you go to any grocery store, u can asked.  For the conversion rate, try the INTERNET.  Good Luck and enjoy [smiley=rolleyes.gif] [smiley=grin.gif]
