This is a basic Cuban style Yuca recipe. I don’t have tons of experience cooking Yuca so I had to do some research and testing. My friends and me had a similar dish at a local vegan buffet and we really liked it so I wanted to replicate that to share with my friends and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it. This is a side dish and can be served alongside your favorite veggie dishes or Spanish style rice & beans. The texture of the dish should be somewhat similar to mashed potato but not as soft and mushed.
What is Yuca?
The Yuca root, also known as cassava, is a dense, starchy food that’s rich in carbohydrates. It’s a good source of fiber, folate, vitamin C, and potassium. The Yuca root is also still referred to as Tapioca in northeast Brazil. The Yuca is commonly used in south & Central America, where it is originated.
