Tell Me About Tapioca!

Recommended Posts

Tapioca is not commen to use in Norway, and is hard to get a hold of. But now i have some, and i see that it is used in alot of glutenfree resiepes.

What can i do with it? Does it work on its own, or best with other flours? Texture? Flavour? Is it good for you?

I've used it for years to make pudding (whole or pre-cooked).  As kids we didn't even let the pudding cool down completely to eat.  I used it just this week as a thickener for my apple cobbler.  It helps solidify the filling for pies.  Now being gluten-free, it's another "piece" of the flour blends used for baking.

You can make Pandebono, colombian cheese bread: http://www.mycolombianrecipes.com/pandebono-colombian-cheese-bread

 

or something like this: http://www.agirlworthsaving.net/2013/01/paleo-garlic-bread.html

 

I like to use it mixed in almond flour recipes - too much almond flour gives me "nut belly"

If you have pearls, I personally don't know of any use for them other than pudding. I do greatly enjoy tapioca pudding though and highly recommend it.

 

If you have flour, Brazilian cheesebread is by far my absolute favorite thing to make. The muffin pans must be mini muffin pans for this, there is no substitute. This is served in some local restaurants just as rolls, and if it weren't for the fact that I was diagnosed with celiac I would never have known it is gluten free. It is amazingly delicious, light and fluffy and hundreds of people a day inhale it in these restaurants without ever guessing it's safe for us too! http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/02/quick-brazilian-cheese-rolls-pao-de-queijo-2/
