Oven-fried Yucca

Oven-fried Yucca

What you need:
  • 1 pound fresh yucca (cassava), cut into 3-inch sections and peeled
  • Non-stick oil cooking spray

What you do:

  • In a kettle, combine the yucca with enough cold water to cover it by 1 inch. Bring the water to a boil, and slowly simmer the yucca for 20 to 30 minutes, or until it is tender.
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Transfer the yucca with a slotted spoon to a cutting board, let it cool, and cut it lengthwise into 3/4-inch-wide wedges, discarding the thin woody core.
  • Spray cookie sheet with the nonstick cooking oil spray.
    Spread yucca wedges on cookie sheet, and spray wedges with cooking oil spray. Cover with foil paper and bake for 8 minutes.  Uncover and return to oven to bake for an additional 7 minutes.

Enjoy!
