The thickening of soups with tapioca is often indicated for Consommés and the result gives an acceptable consistency, the procedure is, however, entirely optional. If a Consommé is thickened with tapioca it should be cooked very carefully then strained through a clean cloth. The addition of Pluches of chervil although recommended, is also optional.
