Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread

Gluten Free Regina would like to introduce you to Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread Recipe

I had the Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread at a friend’s house. She finally gave me the recipe and I kept putting off trying to bake them. With COVID19 I had time on my hands and like everyone else, I turned to my oven/stove for comfort in the isolation.

These little balls are chewy in the middle. You can make them with most types of cheeses. I added Montreal Steak Spice to mine instead of salt. It would be delicious to add different herbs.

Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread Recipe

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: Enough batter for 16 – 20 mini muffin sized cheese bread

The recipe as presented is fairly basic. Feel free to dress it up a bit with herbs or spices of your choice.


  • 1 large egg*
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (170 grams) tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup (packed, about 66 grams) grated cheese, your preference, we get good results with feta cheese (no need to grate), or fresh farmer’s cheese (if using fresh farmer’s cheese, you may want to add another 1/2 teaspoon of salt)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (or more to taste)











Brazilian Cheese Bread

*It helps when baking with eggs to start with eggs at room temperature. If you don’t plan ahead (that would be me, usually) you can put the egg in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to gently take off the chill of the fridge. Special equipment:

One 24-well or two 12-well mini muffin tins. Mini muffin tins are about half the size of a regular muffin pan. The muffin openings are about 1-inch deep, and 1 3/4 inch wide at the top.



Brazilian Cheese Bread 1 Pre-heat oven, prepare mini-muffin tin: Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread a small amount of olive oil around the insides of each well of a mini-muffin tin.

2 Blend ingredients: Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the blender so that everything gets blended well. At this point, you can store the batter in the refrigerator for up to a week.

3 Pour into mini-muffin tin: Pour batter into the prepared mini-muffin tin, not quite to the top; leave about 1/8 inch from the top.

4 Bake: Bake at 400°F in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until all puffy and nicely browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack for a few minutes.

Brazilian Cheese Bread

Eat while warm or save to reheat later.

Note that Brazilian cheese bread is very chewy, a lot like Japanese mochi.

Blue Rose


From Blue Rose:

“Being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010 led to many changes. For the first few years, I avoided all breads, baking, and pastas. The few times I’d purchase some gluten free breads or baking, I was very disappointed. It usually tasted like saw dust, or had a crumbly texture that was not at all appealing.
After many years of frustration at what was available commercially, and being fed up with reading all the long lists of chemical ingredients/additives on the ingredient lists of gluten free items, I decided to learn how to bake again.
Through the years of trial and error, I have finally found some recipes that are hard to tell that they are gluten free when you taste them. This page contains the easiest mixes I have made, that turn out wonderfully almost every time.
I have boxed up some of my most fool-proof mixes and am making them available for consumers who need gluten or other allergen free foods, and miss the wonderful home-made freshness and the taste that comes with home baking. These mixed are easy to make – no tricky procedures or specialized equipment needed.

All mixes that I make are additive and preservative free. Most of my flour is freshly ground when I blend and box the mixes. If you have found a mix you’d like to try, but are allergic to ingredients in that mix – milk, nuts, etc. – let me know. I can do a custom blend.
I also have created a sugar-free line, using all natural, diabetic safe sugar replacements – no aspartame. These mixes use Xylitol, Erythritol, and Stevia blends. I also make Sugar Replacement Icing Sugar and Brown Sugar for those who love to do their own baking.”


NO Additives
NO Preservatives
FRESH ground flour

All mixes on this site are gluten free. Look on each mix for the following allergen”

Ginger- Herb- Recipes

I saw this recipe for ginger soup show up on my Facebook feed. Looks great so I thought I would share it. Ginger may reduce hypertensioninflammationDNA breakagenauseamigraines, and amyloid beta build-up, which is involved in Alzheimer’s disease. It may also reduce DNA damage from radiation and provide some protection from industrial pollutants. Ginger is an ingredient in chai tea, a drink considered to be a good antioxidant source. Adding ginger to a healthy pumpkin pie recipe makes it even healthier.

Ginger Soup It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain.


Rose McHale Always happy to share grandma’s recipe!

So, I generally measure out my water into the pan by using a bowl. If there’s 4 of us eating I put in 5 bowls of water. 6 of us- 7 bowls of water.

I add in enough chicken to feed us. A few chicken breasts without bones and a few thighs with skin and bone. But grandma usually uses a whole mini chicken. I just like keeping it simpler. Lol.

Boil/simmer until cooked. Then take the chicken out, cut it up and place aside.

Add in two heaping handfuls of ginger, sliced. Sometimes without the skin and sometimes with the skin. Just depends on our mood that day, if we feel like scraping it off. 😅

Add in two chicken bouillon cubes, garlic salt (1 tbsp or so), a few dollops of oyster sauce. Then let simmer on low for a few hours.

I then add one onion cut into thin slices and turn it up until the onion is tender. Add a splash/drizzle of soy sauce, and some pepper.

Then add the chicken back in and turn off the heat. Serve with (on top of) a bowl of Jasmine rice.

We don’t measure the seasoning usually because we make it so often. But that’s it. It’s really simple. You may also need to add more water while it’s simmering if the water level goes down.



11 Proven Health Benefits of Ginger

Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Here are 11 health benefits of ginger that are supported by scientific research. It Contains Gingerol, a Substance With Powerful Medicinal Properties

Ginger is a flowering plant that originated from China. It belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, and is closely related to turmeric, cardamom and galangal.The rhizome (underground part of the stem) is the part commonly used as a spice. It is often called ginger root, or simply ginger.
Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few. Ginger can be used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil or juice, and is sometimes added to processed foods and cosmetics. It is a very common ingredient in recipes.
The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects (1Trusted Source).


Ginger is a popular spice. It is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Ginger can treat  many forms of nausea, especially morning sickness. Ginger appears to be highly effective against nausea. Ginger may also relieve nausea and vomiting after surgery, and in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It may be the most effective when it comes to pregnancy-related nausea, such as morning sickness.According to a review of 12 studies that included a total of 1,278 pregnant women, 1.1-1.5 grams of ginger can significantly reduce symptoms of nausea. However, ginger had no effect on vomiting episodes in this study. Although ginger is considered safe, talk to your doctor before taking large amounts if you are pregnant. Some believe that large amounts can raise the risk of miscarriage, but there are currently no studies to support this.

Borage- Herb

Gluten Free Regina explores the world of herbs and plants. Today’s plant is Borage. It grows like a weed in Saskatchewan but what the hell do you do with it? It kept popping up in the garden I started letting it grow and it made these beauties!!! Now they’re growing everywhere! So what do I do with them?



The herb is known to be rich in gamma linolenic acid, the Omega-6 Fatty Acid that is as essential for overall health. The herb is believed to act as a restorative agent on the adrenal cortex. In other words, Borage Leaf extract will revive and renew adrenal glands after medical treatments of cortisone or steroids. This explains the ancient uses for Borage to uplift and strengthen the spirits, especially in times of grief. Today’s translation of this healing herbal extract is to help people deal with everyday stress and exhaustion. Borage leaves are used as a diuretic to support treatment of urinary tract conditions and weak hearts, and varicose veins. It is also used to soothe the body’s mucous membranes, suppress inflammation and help ease arthritis and rheumatism. Borage has antibacterial effects against Helicobacter pylori, bacteria that can cause stomach ulcers. It has been used to increase breast milk production and is one of the most popular herbs among women for treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS), as well as menopausal symptoms. Borage has proved to be an excellent alternative medicine to for fibrocystic breast. The healthy fats are also used to delay male baldness naturally, as well as other types of hair loss. It also improves skin’s water retention and provides nourishment to dry or damaged hair. As an anti-inflammatory, it is said to also help to relieve inflammatory conditions such as eczema, seborrheic dermatitis and other skin conditions. Some believe that Borage leaf herbal extract may be the perfect remedy for treating a hangover or preventing them. Borage is packed with healthy nutrients and a good herbal supplement for women, because it contains high levels of calcium and iron that so many women are deficient in. It is a well known herb for its soothing qualities and has been useful in the treatment of nervous conditions. Its natural sedative effects have been used to ease mood swings and depression often associated with menopause and menstrual cycles. Borage leaf also holds a good amount of potassium, manganese, copper, zinc and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, which help to control heart rate and blood pressure. The manganese content is useful as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is another important co-factor for cellular metabolism. Additionally, it is a component of hemoglobin inside red blood cells, and determines the oxygen carrying capacity of the herb. B-complex vitamins, particularly niacin, help to lower LDL cholesterol levels in the body. Borage may be helpful in preventing prostate cancer cells in males and may increase the effectiveness of the drug tamoxifen in the treatment of breast cancer. Cancer studies show that gamma linolenic acid (GLA) can kill 40 different kinds of cancer cells in the laboratory tissue tests without harming healthy tissue. Researchers say the GLA can induce apoptotic death in tumorous cells, a process where the bad cells break into smaller pieces which other body cells destroy. Although these studies are relatively new, scientists believe that Borage shows great promise as an alternative cancer therapy. The research showed that it suppresses tumor growth and prevent cancer and the carcinogenic substances. The adrenal glands in the body work very hard, especially when the body is working hard all day to prepare for fight or flight situations and constantly releasing adrenalin into the body. Its natural sedative effects have been used to soften the nervous edge that some experience. The herbal extract of Borage leaf has an action on the endocrine system as well, and has been recommended for thyroid issues. It has been traditionally used for increasing lactation in women who are breastfeeding their babies, so it probably acts on the endocrine chain, on the hypothalamus and pituitary. Borage contains silicon, which can have a powerful rebuilding effect on the nervous system. Borage benefits in the transmission of the nerve impulses and also prevents nerve damage. The use of Borage is essential to improve peripheral neuropathy. The fatty acids in Borage contributes to healthy nerve development in such diseases as multiple sclerosis (MS) and cystic fibrosis, a recessive genetic disease affecting most critically the lungs, pancreas, liver and intestine. Like other adrenal nourishing herbs such as Licorice and Ginseng, Borage is could be a vital herbal remedy in today’s world. This herbal remedy is valued as it is said to effectively counteract the effects of steroids and other substances in the body. It is also believed to encourage the production adrenal production of steroid hormones and is used as a helpful herb when weaning a person off steroid therapy. Borage should be able to clear up any congestion, from your lungs to the back of your throat. Borage is considered a superlative demulcent that soothes mucous membranes, including those of the respiratory system, reducing the discomforts of sore throat, chronic bronchitis, hacking coughs and bronchial infections such as pleurisy and tuberculosis – and also those irritated tissues of the gastrointestinal system. There is some evidence that Borage, when taken in combination with eicosapentaenoic acid might reduce the number of days in intensive care (ICU) and length of time spent on a breathing machine for patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Borage is a natural diuretic that has been used for kidney and bladder ailments. Fevers can be alleviated using Borage herbal remedy and herbal medicine makes extensive use of this herb in this respect as it possesses a calming and cooling effect on the body, which can rapidly decrease elevated body temperature. The general regulatory effects of Borage Leaf tincture include the control of arterial muscle tone, sodium excretion through the kidneys, blood platelet (stickiness), inflammatory response and immune function, just to name of few. Convalescing and recovering patients, in many parts of Europe, have been treated with Borage Leaf extracts, to regain strength and boost their chances of recovery from weakness or disease. Borage is considered one of the “good fats” that are thought to be instrumental in lowering blood pressure, and considered to be as necessary for your health as vitamins that are commonly lost through normal aging, dietary fat intake and other effects. The gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content in Borage helps in decreasing the level of body serums and therefore keeps the body away from heart diseases and high cholesterol problems. Borage is of great benefit preventing the atherosclerotic plaque that can be a major cause behind the cardiovascular disease. Some other benefits of taking Borage tincture is for improving blood circulation, preventing blood clotting, high blood pressure, or hypertension. Borage contains the essential fatty acids and minerals that help to maintain healthy skin and nails. Borage leaf tinctures benefits are numerous in the field of skin care for the aging, roughness and dryness of the skin. Regular use of Borage internally will improve skin health, not only scaly, dry skin, but acne, itchy scalp and the chronic inflammatory skin condition of rosacea. Borage can help in solving the inflammatory problems of skin inflammation, eczema, psoriasis and cutaneous inflammatory skin disorders. Externally, Borage has been used in eyewashes, gargles, mouthwashes and poultices, but contact with the leaves may cause dermatitis in sensitive persons.

Add one tablespoon young freshly chopped leaves to every 4 cups beet, cabbage, green pea or spinach soup

Acquacotta literally means cooked water. It is generally served as a one coarse meal and in the past was eaten by shepherds and stockmen. There are as many versions as there are cooks.

  3. Spoon some vegetables and a bit of the vegetable broth over the slices, drizzle some olive oil over them, and serve them with freshly ground pepper.


Vegetables with Borage

Borage flowers makes an attractive edible garnish and may be added to any green or fruit salad to taste. Young finely chopped borage leaves may be added to any green salad, but do not add too much because of their hairy texture. Especially good with beans, green peas and spinach.

Borage Leaves as a Vegetable

Wash young borage leaves and remove stalks. Chop finely and cook in a little butter in a covered saucepan over a very low heat. Season to taste. The dampness of the washed leaves should be enough to keep them from sticking to the bottom; they should soon be tender and their hairy texture disappears when cooked. Try to combine the borage leaves with cabbage or spinach using about one-third borage leaves to two-thirds cabbage or spinach and cook in the same way. It is makes a great ‘marog’.

We asked what their Gluten Free options are:

From the owner:

Our grilled portobello mushrooms, smoked tofu, and grilled veggies are all gluten free; only the falafel is not at this time. Our rice bowls are gluten free so you may add any of the above as a protein. You may also add them to a salad, gluten free pizza or our baked fries Poutine. We have a sauce list that indicates which are gluten free/vegan to help guide you as well!
