Pao de Queijo (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Judy Tolliver.

The state of Minas Gerais is known throughout Brazil for its cuisine, and there are places in other parts of Brazil where one can buy pã de queijo and other mineiro specialties. Any mineiro cook can make pao de queijo, and there are endless recipes and methods for it. Minas Gerais is also known for its cheeses; the Wisconsin of Brazil, if you wish.

Makes 2 dozen appetizer-sized balls.

Preheat oven to 375°. Boil the following until white foam appears (on stove or in microwave):

½ cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup milk
(1 tsp salt optional)
Add this hot mixture to 2 cups tapioca starch. Mix well with wooden spoon
and let rest for about 15 minutes. You will get white ball. Mix in 2 eggs
and about 6 ounces grated hard cheese (e.g., parmesan). You will get a
gooey, sticky mass.

To form balls, cover hands with grease, use a teaspoon and quickly roll
into ball shape as best you can (they will smooth out during baking).
Better yet, use a miniature ice-cream scoop. Each ball should be about 1-
½ inch in diameter. Bake on lightly greased sheet or on parchment paper.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on size, until tops begin to brown.

Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can ...

It was difficult yes, but on reflection worthwhile as the gluten challenge confirmed that a wide spectrum of symptoms were all either fully or mostly resolved on a gluten free diet and resuming it saw them reappear. Once you know this it doesn't really matter what blood tests say, you don't want ...

If she was just tested for DQ2 or DQ8 then it isn't for sure that she will never develop celiac. There are other genes that have been found to be associated but not all doctors are aware. The gene I have a double copy of, DQ9, is one example. Here is one research article but more can be found f...

Well, thank you for replying. Yes, I would also like to know and have a certain "validation" but I will go on to eat gluten free. Thank you for the idea of keeping a food diary. I was keeping one for weight loss, but I guess my primary focus will be gluten-free as well. I'm sorry you had to ea...

Thank you everyone. Jmg & cycling lady sorry for being snippy . I appreciate your help just frustrated. sorry if I am a bit snippy. Not well as you sense. I hate this particular symptom/ reaction. The gluten challenge opened the door to a bunch of symptoms I buried for 3 1/2 gluten-free yea...
