    About this recipe: This savoury little gluten-free snack is a perfect starter or party food. I'm borrowing this recipe from my Brazilian friend Crislei who is so kind enough to share this foolproof recipe.

    Serves: 8 

    • 60ml rapeseed oil
    • 60ml water
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 135g tapioca flour
    • 1 egg
    • 5 tablespoons natural yoghurt
    • 40g grated Parmesan cheese
    • 50g grated mozzarella cheese

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 230 C / Gas mark 8.
    2. Combine the oil, water and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Place the tapioca flour in a metal bowl; pour the oil and water mixture over the tapioca; mix thoroughly. Beat in the egg. Stir in the yoghurt, Parmesan and mozzarella. Pour the mixture into mini-muffin tins.
    3. Place on middle rack of the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Bake until slightly golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
