Gluten- and Lactose-free Baked Cassava Balls

I love cassava (or manioc, or yuca)… I grew up with this ingredient on meals and finally found a store that sells it. So there you are, one of my favorite cassava recipes, adapted to my “trying-to-be-healthy” lifestyle!

Ingredients (yields ca. 12 balls)
1 cup cassava, cooked and mashed
½ cup gluten-free flour
1 egg
¼ cup parsley, chopped
¼ cup scallions, chopped
1 TBS ghee*
2 TBS lactose-free cheese/goat cheese, grated
Himalayan salt, to taste
Olive oil, to drizzle

*the minute amounts of lactose in ghee are unlikely to be enough to have an effect on lactose intolerants, but if you want, use margarine (yuck, I hate it!!!)

In a big bowl, mix all the ingredients (except olive oil) until smooth. Wet your hands with some water and roll the balls. Put them on a greased baking sheet and drizzle some olive oil on top. Bake in pre-heated oven at 200°C for 30 minutes or until golden.
