Light-as-air cheese puffs make a great Christmas canapé, but classic recipes call for all-purpose flour. Luckily, our gluten-free version promises puffs that are crispy outside and soft inside, thanks to one secret ingredient: RICE!

    • 3/4 cup (175 g) jasmine rice
    • 1 1/4 cups (310 ml) water
    • 1/2 lb (225 g) semi-soft cheese (such as Oka, raclette, muenster), the rind removed, cut into small pieces
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 tsp ground Espelette pepper


Note from Ricardo

Espelette pepper puts a little fire in these puffs. You could substitute the spice with cayenne or chili flakes, but we find this particular pepper gives just the right amount of heat without overpowering the cheese.
