After spending a long and relaxing weekend with my best friend in the “Harz” area it’s time to come back to a normal routine. And the best is to kickstart the day with such a delicious pudding. Tapioca are tiny white starch grains extracted from the dried cassava root. In India tapioca is often made as a pudding and eaten at the end of fasting time during which gluten, sugar and most of the spices are omitted. Tapioca is neutral in taste, gluten-free and pairs well with different spices. Depending on taste it can be cooked in nut milk, oat milk or regular milk. Tastes great for breakfast or as a dessert.
