List of Ingredients

Cassava root

 

 Cassava flour is made by cooking, drying and grinding cassava root to a fine powder.  It differs from Tapioca Flour in that Tapioca flour is made from the starch of the cassava plant where the Cassava flour is the ground root.  

 Naturally gluten-free this flour is processed in a facility that is also gluten-free.  

Great for breads and other baked goods, it is suitable for a celiac diet and we've added a little recipe below for you to try this Cassava flour. 

Cassava is good substitute for wheat flour.  As a side note: Insects will not eat Cassava Flour, not even cockroaches.

 

GLUTEN FREE CASSAVA BREAD

3/4 c. Cassava Flour *
1/3 c. All purpose Gluten free flour *
1/2 t. aluminum free baking powder *
1/2 t. xanthan gum *
Pinch of sea salt *
3/4 c water
1 T vegetable oil

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Slowly add water, blending it smoothly into the dry ingredients.  

Stir in vegetable oil.  

Dough should hold together well enough to roll out.  If necessary add more water, 1 T at a time.

Divide dough into half.  Place one half in plastic bag to prevent drying while working with the second half.

Sprinkle pastry board with cassava flour and roll dough out into about a 6"-8" circle about 1/4" thick.  

Heat griddle or heavy skillet.  Brush with oil when hot.  

Fry each disk of dough about 3-4 minutes per side.  Surface should be speckled with browning. 

Cool slightly on wire rack while cooking second disk.  

Eat while still warm as it will toughen when cold.

To reheat or as an enhancement: brush with a mix of olive oil and crush garlic clove and heat in the oven at 350 F for a few minutes. This will crisp the bread.
