There is a new flour in the house and it is really awesome. Otto’s Cassava Flour may be your next grain free flour you can’t live without!
What is cassava? Cassava is also known as yuca and is a root vegetable.
You may be thinking about tapioca starch now, but don’t confuse those two. Tapioca is the bleached and extracted starch of the cassava root. Otto’s Cassava Flour is a whole food! It is the whole root; peeled, dried, and ground. Otto’s Cassava Flour and tapioca flour/starch have very different actions in both baking and your digestive system.
I have tried Otto’s Cassava Flour in few recipes. The results were amazing.
First I made cookies. The flour gave a nutty taste (there is no nuts in the flour!). The dough came a little bit crumbly but the final product tasted really good. Look at those Thumbprint cookies! Aren’t they cute?
I have also tried the flour in the tortilla recipe. (I have followed the recipe from Fork and Beans. Cara is amazing and yet again her recipe didn’t disappoint!) Tortillas came out just PERFECT! The texture and flavor were dangerously delicious. The flour is so perfect for tortillas!
I will be using this flour again in the future and if I come up with some good recipe, I will post it here.
