1 cup tapioca flour
½ log plain goat cheese (about 160 gr.)
2 tbsp. water (1/8 cup)
Smoked or Himalayan salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Mix the flour, goat cheese, and egg slowly with your fingers, add the water and keep mixing until all ingredients are a cohesive (yet sticky) mix.
With damp hands, create balls - slightly smaller than golf balls - and place on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle salt on top.
Place in the oven and bake until golden (about 15-20 minutes).
Makes 10 buns
These irresistible buns are a take-off of the “Pan de Yuca” Colombian bread – basically starch and cheese.
A dear American-Colombian friend introduced me to her version, and I fell in love.
After several trials and errors of my version, this is it!
On their own, with butter, next to a salad or a saucy dish - they are truly full of yumminess and comfort.
