Aside From Pudding, How Can I Use Tapioca Pearls?

Q: I have a box of large tapioca pearls that I bought for a dessert. I love tapioca pudding but I'm the only one in the house who eats it.

Any suggestions for non-dessert recipes? Thanks!

Editor: Rachel, depending on how large your tapioca pearls are, you could make some sort of boba (bubble) tea with it! We love milk tea with cooked tapioca pearls in the bottom of the glass.

If that's too offbeat for your family, then look for dumpling recipes that use tapioca, like this one from Veggie Belly:

Thai Tapioca Pearl Dumplings (Saku Sai)

Readers, any good ideas for Rachel?
