  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 125 g of bacon, cut into small pieces (4.45 oz)
  • 1 medium onion, cut into slices
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 2 cups cassava flour (280g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bunch of parsley, chopped


  • In a large skillet, roast 1 cup of cassava flour on low heat. About 5 minutes, or until it is golden brown. Remove immediately and let cool on a plate.
  • In the same pan, over medium heat, add butter, oil, and bacon. Cook until the bacon is crispy.
  • Add the onion and garlic, and cook until the onion is golden brown.
  • Add roasted cassava flour and the other cup of unroasted flour. Mix and cook over high heat.
  • Stir constantly and cook for 3 minutes.
  • If it needs salt, add 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Add chopped parsley, mix and serve.


Once cool, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
I recommend this brand for cassava flour. Amafil.
