How to Use Cassava
There are many ways you can incorporate cassava into your diet. You can prepare several snacks and dishes with the root on its own. It is commonly sliced and then baked or roasted, similar to the way you would prepare a potato. Additionally, cassava root can be mashed or mixed in with stir-fries, omelets and soups. It’s also sometimes ground into flour and used in bread and crackers.
You can also enjoy it in the form of tapioca, which is a starch extracted from the cassava root through a process of washing and pulping. Tapioca is commonly used as a thickener for puddings, pies and soups.
Summary: Cassava is typically used in the same way that you would use potatoes and makes an excellent addition to just about any dish. It can also be ground into flour or enjoyed in the form of tapioca.
