Impress your guests with this traditional Brazilian comfort food! “Escondidinho” is a traditional Brazilian dish that has the main ingredient hidden by a creamy puree. It is very similar to a “Shepherd’s Pie”, and the main ingredient is usually cassava or yuca. In this Keto-friendly version, the puree is made of cauliflower and the chicken is the protagonist. Add some grated cheese to melt if desired. You’ll love it!
