Gluten-free Sweet Potato and Corn Casserole

Recipe Description

You can use pumpkin in this recipe instead of the sweet potatoes, if you like, but leave out the lemongrass|lemon grass.

Look for cornflakes which don't contain malt. If you can't find any, instead use breadcrumbs made with gluten-free bread (home-made or from health shop).
