Tried this with some frozen rhubarb I had in the freezer from last summer. It was amazing. I substituted butternut squash for the yams for dietary reasons. I am now waiting to pick this year's rhubarb as I am dying to have this treat again.
Solid keeper! I wanted a little more flavor - but it is probably that I need to use a better quality curry powder. I love the use of rhubarb in main meals (it's not just for dessert!). Very healthy and filling, and an intriguing mix of ingredients. Thank you!
This is absolutely unbelievable!!! It has such an interesting combination of flavors! And, it's a complete powerhouse of nutrients. I used Agave nectar to make it vegan. I also added a little lite coconut milk to make it a little moister. This is definitely a new favorite!
