Recipe: Boiled Yuca with Garlic and Lemon Juice

RSS Feed

Filed under: Latino, Recipes

This classic dish is the Cuban and Puerto Rican equivalent of mashed potatoes and gravy.  Yuca is a common tropical root that we know better as cassava or tapioca.  Yes, the same tapioca in boba and tapioca pudding.

This recipe’s so simple to prepare, you may find yourself making it quite often.  It is literally as simple as boiling water.  To make it even easier, use our frozen, peeled yuca in the Aisle 1 freezer, and you’ll save yourself lots of time!

Yuca (Cassava)

Serves 4-5

  • 3-4 lb Yuca, peeled and cut into 2-3″ long segments
  • 4 ea Garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp Salt (or to taste)
  • ¼ cup Olive oil
  • Lemon juice to taste

Boil yuca in large pot with the salt until tender. Then remove from water and sprinkle with garlic and lemon juice.

Heat the oil in a small pan, then pour over yuca.

    Simply cut yuca in small pieces and cook it in salted water until tender. Then fry it.

    You will never want french fries again.
