Food & Drink : Canary Islands Staple, Gofio

Gofio is a flour made from roasted sweetcorn and other grains (e.g wheat, barely or oat) . Gofio was first eaten by the Guanches, the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands, as the main staple of their diet. Gofio is still an important ingredient in Canary Islander cooking, and Canary Islander emigrants have spread its use to the Caribbean and all of Latin America. Gofio can be added to soups, stews, desserts, ice cream, sauces, and more.
