Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Serving Size: 24 mini breads (50g each)


  • 300g potatoes
  • 200g tapioca starch
  • 50g sour cassava flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 5 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 15g nutritional yeast


  • Prepare the Potatoes:
  • Start by peeling and chopping the potatoes into small chunks.
  • Boil them in salted water until they become soft and fork-tender.
  • Once cooked, drain the potatoes and mash them thoroughly. Set them aside.
  • Create the Dough:
  • In a small pot, combine the water, vegetable oil, and salt. Bring them to a gentle boil.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the tapioca starch, sour cassava flour, and baking powder.
  • Carefully pour the boiling liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix it all together until it forms a cohesive dough.
  • Add the Final Touches:
  • Incorporate the mashed potatoes and nutritional yeast into the dough. Continue mixing until the ingredients are well combined and the dough is smooth.
  • Shape the Mini Breads:
  • Take portions of the dough and roll them into small 50g balls. The dough may be slightly sticky, but that’s normal.
  • Baking Time:
  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Lightly grease a baking tray with vegetable oil or use parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  • Place the mini bread balls on the tray, leaving some space between them.
  • Bake to Perfection:
  • Pop the tray into the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the breads turn a beautiful golden brown color and develop a crispy exterior.
  • Serve and Enjoy:
  • Once out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes, but not too long because they’re best enjoyed warm!
  • Serve your Brazilian Vegan Cheese Bread as an appetizer, snack, or alongside your favorite vegan dipping sauce.
