How do I make cassava bread?
There are two ways to make cassava bread – either using a food processor or by hand. For the food processor method, you will need: 1 cup of raw, unpeeled cassava chips or 2 cups of boiled, mashed cassava; 1 egg; 2 tablespoons of olive oil or melted butter; 1 teaspoon of salt. Simply blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor until a dough forms. If the dough is too wet, add more cassava chips until it reaches a sticky consistency. If it is too dry, add a little water until it forms a ball.

In this case, it's gonna be raw. It doesn't taste very good. Nah, nah, nah,
I have figured out my tripod this morning, hoping that this is gonna work out fantastic. I have the cassava bread here that we offer on our website and in the store. And I wanted to give you, um, a couple of different ideas and tips on how to, or what to do with this because it's identified as cassava bread. It's really more like a cracker. And I wanna go ahead and give you some pointers on how to do this, how to enjoy it. Um, Lela and I cook it similarly, but different. So I will share how she does it and how I do it. And I'm opening up the package right now. It's just the cellophane that comes off of it. And that's the way it gets shipped to you. We also ship it. We put it in a Ziploc baggie. If you're getting it shipped that the store is just gonna be in the plastic.
So when you open it up, you're gonna get like multiple crackers. And the reason why I mention that is because as you go ahead and prepare it in the cracker format, in this case, it's gonna be raw and it doesn't taste very good. Like honestly, if you taste, it's like, nah, nah, what you really wanna do with it is prepare it by putting it in the toaster oven or regular conventional oven. You want it somewhere like around three 50, you could go 3 25, 3 75. I haven't tried it yet in the air fryer, but you probably could on the air crisp setting. And so what you're gonna wanna do is you're gonna wanna take your crisp and or your cracker, your bread, your cassava, and Lela takes it. And she puts olive oil on it first. And then she puts it on the tray and she puts it into the oven.
She cooks hers or bakes hers for about seven to 10 minutes because she likes it super, super crispy. I don't like it as crispy. And it also depends on how I'm, how I'm gonna eat it or what I'm gonna eat it with. And so what you're gonna wanna do is toast it up and then go ahead and enjoy it. However you'd like, um, one of the things that I like to do with this is if we make a stew like a beef stew or even we take ground beef and we cook that up and we put seasonings in it to make like a chili. And when we do that, I don't necessarily like bread. I mean, I do enjoy bread, but only specific breads. You know? I mean, I like, I I'm very particular. So, um, with the cassava, what I'll do is I'll either make it as a cracker for something to snack on just when I need something crispy or crunchy like that.
Or if we're doing ground beef, like a chili style, or we're doing a beef stew and I want something to use as a little wedge, or I wanna have that crispy texture with it, you can dip it in as a little spoon shovel paddle. However you wanna say it, and you can utilize this as an accompaniment to your dinner and you could pretty much use it for anything. I mean, if you're using different kinds of noodles, whether it's a veggie noodle, a, um, wheat noodle, a cassava noodle, any of those, you could use this and take your, your fork and, and twirl up. So there's a lot of really great opportunities you can do and eat and enjoy the cassava bread with. Um, don't be shy. We have it on special. We've got it on the website. We have it in the store. And so this will give you an opportunity to try something new.
It is truly a grain free cassava. It comes from the Yuca root. And if you're not sure what that looks like as it's growing, you can see all of this head behind us this like the it's a Yuca root leaf, but that's all of that fuzzy stuff that's behind me. And we'll start to harvest those in a couple of months. No, we did not make these, um, I don't have enough experience with that yet, but you know, um, no, just kidding. And so, but we will have Yuca coming ready, um, when it's ready to harvest and we'll have that available, um, on the website and we should have that available in the store as well. So happy cassava breading and, um, have a great rest of your day. I hope this little tidbit helped out and what to do with cassava bread, how to enjoy it and how to best prepare it. Have a wonderful day farmer, Nicole circle, sea farm from our past to your plate. Thank you for being part of the circle sea family.
