Vegan Teatime

Tapioca Shooters

   Vegan Teatime Tapioca with Chocolate Ganache

Smooth, luscious, vanilla speckled tapioca shoots topped with chocolate Ganache makes the perfect "sweet" for your next Vegan Teatime. Tiny Libbey Shooter Glasses provide the vessel to contain this luscious sweetness and Libbey includes tiny spoons to perfectly fit those dainty teatime bites!

The Above Ground Cassava Plant

The Cassava Plant

Tapioca is harvested from the cassava plant and contains properties that some research scientists believe helps prevent and cure cancer. Wouldn't it be wonderful to eat something that not only tastes good, but is good for you! I made this for my mother during her struggle with cancer... but it didn't cure her. Regardless, she loved it and was one of the things that tasted good during her last months.
Cassava Plant ROOT

The cassava plant has a root system that provides what the tapioca is made from.

Ingredients


  • 3 cups Vanilla Silk Soy Milk, Almond Milk, Rice Milk or Lite Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Small Pearl Tapioca
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 presoaked vanilla bean, caviar-seeds squeezed out
  • 2/3 cup granulated organic sugar

Bob's Red Mill Small Pearl TapiocaPreparation

The Tapioca Pearls

Let's talk about where to buy tapioca... I like the taste of Bob's Red Mill Small Pearl Tapioca the BEST. The flavor is always great. But you can find tapioca in Asian markets in various sizes. Try making these other types to experience the differences.

The tapioca pearls need to be soaked in WATER before cooking, no matter what brand or size that you choose.


Trader Joe's has a canned lite coconut milk without any preservatives or additives. If you buy coconut milk, make sure it only has coconut milk and NO added chemical ingredients that are bad for your health.

Soak the Tapioca the Night Before Cooking

In the evening, after cleaning up from the evening meal, I measure out the tapioca pearls and put them in a bowl with the water. This hydration of the tapioca pearls must be done before you begin cooking, otherwise the pearls take forever to turn translucent... the tapioca is not thoroughly cooked if the pearls are white. If you forget to do this soaking the night before, you could soak them for an hour and then proceed cooking them.

Cooking The Tapioca Pearls

Place the water saturated tapioca pearls into a heavy bottomed saucepan.

Add the vanilla soy milk, sea salt and organic sugar.

Over low heat, stir frequently for 15 minutes, or until tapioca is completely translucent.

If any white is showing in the tapioca pearls, keep cooking till the centers are translucent.

Once the tapioca is fully cooked and NO WHITE shows in the tapioca balls, remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract and the caviar from one presoaked vanilla bean... stir in completely.


Presentation

Pour the cooked tapioca into individual Libbey Shooter Glasses leaving at least an inch for adding a colorful topping. Stewed rhubarb, chocolate Ganache, raspberry preserves, etc. make perfect toppings. Finish off each shooter with a piece of fresh fruit just before serving.

GOURMET HINT: Do not cover the shooters until the tapioca has cooled completely and then add the topping, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Add the fresh fruit garnish just before serving.
