Filipino Cassava Suman for #FruitsandVeggiesMonday


As I have mentioned in my previous post, we have a plenty of cassava. We were a bit tired of just the boiled cassava, so we made cassava suman out of it.

Cassava suman is a native Filipino rice cake made of grated cassava, brown sugar, and coconut milk.

We prepared almost everything from the scratch.

Procedure:
● Peel the cassava and grate it.

● Scoop a cup of grated cassava and squeeze the sap to remove the bitter taste, using a clean cloth.

● Prepare the fillings. Divide the grated cassava into two. Using the half of the grated cassava, mix the sugar and coconut milk until the ingredients are well incorporated.

● Cook the fillings while stirring it.
● Prepare the banana leaves for the wrapper. Heat it up so that it would not break easily.

● Scoop about 1/4 cup of the grated cassava and scoop another 1/4 cup of the cooked fillings.

● Mold the mixture so that it appears to be cylindrical. Roll the banana leaf to wrap the mixture.

Love this! So neat to see another way you prepare cassava. Seems to be quite a versatile plant! I bet it's delicious with the coconut milk. 😄

Oh! I seem to have missed it out. 😢 Sorry. I guess, because we are geographically so near each other, the crops that we grow are basically the same.

I think you can use anything that will hold the mixture as it will be put in a steamer, so maybe corn peel is a good choice (but with all honesty, I do not have an idea how it will turn out). 😂
