Making this recipe was a great challange as we don't have cassava here in Israel. I did a bit a research and managed to approximate it by combining white potatoes, sweet potatoes and a healthy rutabaga. I'm not sure how authentic that was, but I do know that we had a lovely dessert this past Friday night. I used soy milk because I did not want to make the dessert dairy. I served this with some custard on the side. Thanks for submitting this to the tag game, I'm glad I had a chance to try it out!
