How to Make Haitian Cornmeal Mush


  1. Place a medium saucepan over medium heat. When hot, add the oil. When hot, add the onion, garlic, and tomato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the water and bring to a boil. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Stirring continuously to avoid lumps, cook to the consistency of oatmeal or mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sliced avocado.

    ½ white onion, finely chopped
    1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 medium tomato, diced
