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.

Got two minutes? Along with Olive oil, Dijon Mustard and Balsamic vinegar, that’s all you need to make a simple homemade vinaigrette. You can go from spending money on salad dressing to making your own healthier, tastier dressing at home.

I’ve always loved a good salad. Yet even when it’s snowing outside, I still can’t kick my salad habit. This homemade emulsified vinaigrette dressing is my favourite – and arguably the easiest to whip together, too. It’s super, super easy to make and way less expensive and healthier than the store bought one. And I know exactly what goes into it!

Emulsified dressings are thick and creamy and really cling to your veggies. This basic dressing recipe, which features Dijon mustard and subtly sweet balsamic vinegar, gives greens a creamy kick that tastes great all year round.

Not just for salads: Drizzle over roast potatoes, or spoon over a sandwich. They also make a light and brightly flavored topping for poached or grilled fish or poultry, roasted meats, and cooked or raw vegetables.

 

Yuca bread is made from the Yuca purée (or mash). A yuca mash is mixed into the dough, giving it a silky texture. This results in very soft, light and smooth tasting bread. Although the yuca root is starchy and sticky, the bread isn’t. It’s fluffy on the outside and light on the inside.

Yuca (a.k.a. Cassava, Manioc or Mandioca) is a versatile root (a tuber) that is found in both the fresh or frozen sections of large grocery stores. It is a white tuber with a thick, waxy skin. The plant is native to Brazil but has been adopted by cultures around the globe from Thailand to Costa Rica.

Yuca when dried to a powdery (or pearly) extract, is called tapioca. Also try those recipes here using tapioca flour (or starch).
