Brazilian "Cheese" Bread

These Brazilian "cheese" breads are heavenly and exactly like the real ones. Pao-de-queijo as we called them in Portuguese is very popular in Brazil and one thing I thought I was never going to eat again but luckely for me and you, we now have the perfect vegan recipe.
You can keep the dough in the fridge for 2 days or freeze dough balls before baking for up to 3 months.

455g potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/3 cups water plus water to boil the potatoes
2 cups tapioca flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup Vegusto No-Moo Piquant (you can use any vegan cheese you like)
1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 - In a small saucepan boil the water and cook the potatoes until tender, drain and mash.
2 - Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
3 - In a small bowl mix the tapioca flour, nutritional yeast, salt and baking powder.
4 - In a large bowl mix the cheese, 1/3 cup water and oil. Add mashed potatoes, mix together.
5 - Combine wet and dry ingredients to make a soft, smooth dough.
6 - Make small balls using your hands and transfer to the baking sheet. Bake the balls for 20 minutes or until puffed up and lightly golden.

Serve while hot! Enjoy!!

  1. Sounds great! I will definitely give it a try. I already tried so many recipes, but none of them turned out well.
