Tapioca is a starch made from the cassava root. Cassava looks similar to a potato, and when the roots are ground down the flour can be used as a thickening agent or made into little pearls. Tapioca is a great substitute for those who cannot tolerate gluten and is also an excellent source of vitamin B, manganese, and iron. Tapioca pudding is a sweet and creamy dessert that can be layered with fruit and whipped cream, and makes the perfect light ending to a full and heavy meal.
