Chef Marcos, my dear friend joins me in this film. He was born in São Paulo and is of Lebanese and Italian decent. Being influenced by those two cultures in one of the most awesome countries in the world, he makes the most delicious foods! In this video he shows you how to make my low-FODMAP and healthier version of Pão de Queijo.

So what is Pão de Queijo? A.k.a. “cheese balls” to Americans they are cheese-flavored breads which are a very popular snack and breakfast food in Brazil. You can also find similar versions in Colombia, Argentina and Paraguay. We made them with tapioca flour but they can also be made with cassava flour if you can find it. We also used unrefined organic coconut oil instead of a highly-processed vegetable oil. Also, lactose-free milk instead of regular milk makes this recipe low-FODMAP as well as Parmesan cheese which is low in lactose. You can also experiment with different cheeses.

My husband is Brazilian and every time I go to Brazil I just NEED to have some of these! You can find them easily in airports and bus stations, usually sold by the franchise Casa do Pão de Queijo, but the best are usually made in local bakeries or at truck stops and you’ll also see them in supermarkets. The best Pão de Queijo I ever had was at a truck stop between the city of Londrina and Curitiba.
