Cassava Suman in Banana Leaves

Last week, we made cassava suman that we wrapped in banana leaves. You can also do them in aluminum foil, but banana leaves give them a good taste. The leaves need to be wiped cleaned.

All we needed to mix in a bowl are:
1-16 oz. frozen grated cassava, thawed
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2- 3/4 cup sugar

After mixing the ingredients, roll the mixture in the cut banana leaves and fold the two sides to wrap, kinda like making spring rolls. Place the side with the folds down to keep them in place. Steam for 1 hour.

The final product was so delicious!

    I have never used cassava or banana leaves, and I guess you are already a teacher because I am learning from you here. :) Great work!!! Keep up with all this super cooking!

    I love the chef's hat! That is very nice.

    Kai, we're a little concerned. Harmonia mentioned it first, but your blog is gone! It's something about Russia and Willie Nelson on there now. Dreena tried and I tried to hook up to kaivegan, but we get the same thing. I know you said you were going to be off for a while. Are you not blogging anymore?
