Cooking with FOX 7: Taste of Paraguay

Olivia Hayden with Whole Planet Foundation makes a typical dish of Paraguay, mbeju, which is considered one of the most ancient recipes of the culture. The recipe uses tapioca flour and is like a Paraguayan cheese pancake.

The recipe is as follows:


  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup gouda cheese (curds or grated)
  • 1/8 cup organic milk
  • 1/8 cup water (room temperature)
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl, add melted butter. When it gets crumbly, add the milk, cheese, and water.
  • Use your hands to integrate the ingredients after adding each one. When you're finished, the mixture will still be slightly crumbly.
  • Add butter to a hot, nonstick pan.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Enjoy hot with a cup of mate cocido (hot yerba mate).
