    What do you recommend in place of almond meal? Would cornmeal or whole wheat flour work ok? (I am not paleo, just like the recipe, but I am allergic to almond) Thank you!

    Canned or refrigerated coconut milk? Can I sub corn or something else for cauliflower? I dislike cauliflower and broccoli.

      Pam – We use canned coconut milk in all our recipes unless stated otherwise. The cauliflower is what helps make the potato topping. You could certainly sub for all sweet potatoes. I am unsure how corn would turn out.
