Tapioca pudding recipe

Image
Ingredients1/2 cup/4 ounces tapioca (seed or Asian pearl tapioca)
3 cups water (divided)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (13.5 oz.) can coconut milk (or "lite" coconut milk)
Garnish: table syrup or maple syrup to serve
Optional: 1 fresh mango (sliced) Steps to Make It In a medium bowl, cover tapioca with 1 cup water. Let soak for 15 to 20 minutes or until the granules expand slightly. Avoid over-soaking or the tapioca will not be able to hold its shape. Pour off excess water.

In a pot with a lid, combine tapioca, salt, and the remaining 2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally, adding a little more water if necessary to prevent tapioca from bubbling and "spitting."

When the tapioca turns soft and a little gooey, turn off the heat and place the lid on tight. Let it sit at least 10 minutes. The residual heat inside the tapioca will finish turning all of the seeds soft and translucent.

TUNA STEAK RECIPE

Image
How you can prepare tuna Tuna gets dry quite rapidly and turns crumbly, so it ought to be cooked very briefly more than a high temperature inside a fry pan, on the griddle or higher a barbecue or cooked under oil (confit), sous vide or simmered inside a sauce. Tuna could be offered cooked to rare, or cooked to some crust around the outdoors and raw within the center, referred to as tataki in Japan. Pan-frying or griddling get this to simpler to manage.
Because tuna includes a fairly robust flavour, it is simple to add herbs, spices and flavours into it without having to worry about overwhelming the flavour. Marinating tuna steaks will prove to add flavour towards the surface, but won’t allow it to be any juicier – keeping an eye on your steak while cooking is the only method to make certain it won’t dry up.
Serves 2
2 thick tuna steaks

These Eggnog Cookies help your favourite holiday beverage right into a scrumptious handheld treat! You realize, for somebody who doesn’t take care of eggnog in the pure form, I sure have tossed lots of eggnog recipes the right path within the holidays. And That I have a different one coming a few days ago! Whew. I believe that'll be it with this season. Everyone loved the eggnog cheesecake cookie cups I made a few days ago, and so i made the decision to follow the eggnog theme. Plus, I still had eggnog within my fridge which i needed to utilise, since i won’t drink the stuff.
Despite hating eggnog in the pure, thick, unappealing natural form, I really love the flavors it provides to baked goods. Simply swapping out milk for eggnog inside a recipe will truly change it and provide it an ideal quantity of spice and flavour.
To create these cookies, I began with my very favourite chocolate nick cookie recipe. I halved the recipe to create a smaller sized batch, with a couple of quic…
