A very traditional Brazilian recipe for a deliciously dense and moist cake made from fresh Yuca (Cassava/Manioc) and coconut.

This recipe came from my mom. I love this cake since I was a child. This is the only sweet I compulsively eat, yes; I cannot control myself to stop eating it.

This cake is weighty as a brownie. It is completely gluten-free, very easy to make and an incredibly delightful alternative to accompany your mid-afternoon coffee.

 

Escondidinho in Brazil, cottage pie or Shepherd’s pie in North America, Pastelón in Mexico or Caribe… This pie is a casserole that combines yuca (cassava/ manioc) and a savoury filling – meat (ground beef – my family favourite), shrimp (my favourite), diced chicken, turkey, fish, dried codfish (bacalhau), pork, Sun-dried Beef/jerked beef (The famous Escondidinho de Carne Seca in Brazil) and also soy or veggies could be added or used without meat for a vegetarian version… The fillings are limited only by your imagination.

A true one casserole dish that can also be made from leftovers. You already know that I absolutely love casseroles, not only because they are delicious but also because they are easy and ideal for busy days. You can make it ahead and leave it in your fridge and bake it at the end of the day when you come home from work! It can be served by itself or accompanied by a fresh salad or steamed vegetables. It’s really up to you!

It is one of the most versatile pies that can be assembled. And if you don’t like or find the yuca (cassava/manioc) you can also make it using different types of mashed roots, like potatoes or sweet potatoes or instant mashed potatoes, as a substitute.

It’s gluten-free, the dough is perfect for the gluten intolerant. This is pure fabulousness! One of my favourites dishes.

 

If you’re looking for easy pancakes with 100% whole wheat flour, this one will do it for you.

Last week I shared the Easy Basic Pancake Fast2eat. It’s simple and makes extra light and fluffy pancakes. Since it uses all-purpose flour, some people asked for one with 100% whole wheat flour.

These come out very light, fluffy and delicious and are full of whole grain. I absolutely love the nutty flavor of the whole wheat flour.

 

Everyone needs an easy basic pancake recipe up their sleeve.

Whip up a batch of Fast2eat pancake recipe for breakfast or brunch in less than 30 minutes and be the household hero. They are fluffy and delicious. You’ll wonder why you never tried this before!

 

This Brazilian Shrimp stuffed pumpkin (Camarão na Moranga) is really easy to make and is the perfect dish to serve at any Fall dinner party. Actually, in Brazil it is enjoyed all year round!

Delicious, moist baked pumpkin filled with creamy shrimp (and/or prawn), onion, garlic, and cream cheese (or catupiry, a Brazilian creamy cheese)! It’s a simple dish that is going to wow yourself and your guests. If you don’t find a pumpkin you can also bake it in a casserole dish and it is still delicious and beautiful.

Serve it with rice and potato sticks (batata palha), trying to scoop out some moist pumpkin flesh too.

You can also use this creamy shrimp as a quiche filling.

 

It is a delicious casserole dish, also called as strata (or stratta), and very similar to this Brazilian Blender Pie, quiche or frittata, made from a mixture which mainly consists of bread, eggs, milk and cheese. It may also include meat and/or vegetables.

I hate to waste anything, and this is a very simple solution for the leftover bread. You can eat it for brunch, lunch or dinner.

This elegant casserole dish of cubes of bread baked in custard is often a lifesaver on busy days and within 10 minutes you can have it in the oven! You can also assemble it the night before and pop it in the oven as soon as you wake up. I also like it because you can pretty much use whatever you want as a filling. For this one I used cheese and smoked ham but the recipe is pretty flexible so you can play around with different meat and/or sautéed vegetables depending on what you have on hand.

 

Did you know you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes to enjoy a delicious hot bowl of creamy Kale potato soup (AKA Caldo Verde)?

Caldo Verde, a potato and kale soup from Portugal, is a go-to recipe when the weather gets cold outside or for lazy rainy days, when you want something hearty and comforting but don’t feel like putting in a ton of effort.

It’s made with a few simple ingredients, it takes all of maybe 10 minutes of prep work, and it’s ready to eat just less half an hour later. Oh, and it’s all made in a single pot, too. And did I mention delicious? It’s really delicious.

 

Crispy fish without the grease – Haddock (or other white fish) is lightly breaded and baked. Parmesan adds a nice flavour. 

Fast and easy to prepare, and no frying needed! Oven-baked fish is a perfect alternative to the more caloric fried version.

So much flavor… so easy, healthy and tasty! Ideal for busy weeknights.
