Cape Verde Gufong


● 1 cup gofio
● 4 cups of water
● 1/2 cup of milk
● 1/2 cup of sugar
● 1/2 teaspoon of salt
● 1/4 cup of raisins (optional)
● 1/4 cup of coconut milk (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water, milk, sugar and salt to a boil over medium-high
  2. Slowly add the gofio, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the gofio is thickened.
  4. Stir in the raisins and coconut milk (if using).
  5. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the raisins are plump and the coconut milk is
    heated through.
  6. Serve the gufong warm, topped with some honey or sugar if desired.


● You can adjust the consistency of the gufong by adding more water or gofio.
● Feel free to add more sugar or salt to taste

● If you can’t find gofio, you can use cornmeal or any other ground cereal instead.

Enjoy your Cabo Verde Gufong!
