Sweet Kumara Pie.

I feel in love with new Orleans to go twice, and it was not just the people and the atmosphere but cajun food is amazing. I fell in love with this desert which is originally a Sweet Potato Pie, but when i came home i recreated it with kumara instead of the american sweet potato and it fast became a favourite in my family. The texture is creamy, and to die for. If anyone enjoys the desert pumpkin pie you will sure to love this. We usually use Kumara in savoury things but this recipe shows how our favouite kiwi vegie can be used in many other ways.
