Ginataang Kamoteng Kahoy or Cassava in Coconut Cream is a simple concoction of Yucca Root carefully peeled and cleaned then cooked in coconut milk with palm sugar. A very simple and tasty snack which is can also fill your tummy up quick as it packs a lot of carbs 38g/100g compared to rice which had 23g/100g and potato which has 17g/100g.
My grandmother used to make this frequently before as an afternoon snack and since then I totally forgot them until one day an elderly person at our church gave some to us. This brought me back memories of my childhood and since I haven’t tried them for a really long time every piece of it was enjoyed to its fullest. I am not sure if this is also popular in other provinces in the Philippines but since my grandmother is a Bicolano snacks and dishes with coconut milk is a common fare in our household.
