Brazilian Roots Truck brings Brazil’s cassava
based cuisine to the streets of Vancouver
BEIJU: BRAZILIAN TAPIOCA NOW IN CANADA
Vancouver's first Brazilian food truck is focused on the indigenous influences on Brazilian cuisine. CASSAVA, a shrub whose roots are edible, is the base of our menu.
Our featured item is Beiju – an indigenous gluten-free flatbread, made one hundred percent from cassava. Boost its nutrients by adding seeds and nuts, as well as fillings like meat, cheese, fruits and vegan options. Baking a beiju is a magical trick that is healthy and delicious!
The Brazilian Roots Truck also offers other "forest foods", like açaí smoothies, yerba mate and guaraná. We also serve cassava based bread, cassava cheese balls (pão de queijo), paninis and other seasonal options. In addiction to offering a fusion of traditional Brazilian flavours, our kitchen pays special attention to nutrition and will strive to make recipes as healthy as possible, using wholesome local ingredients.
