7 Savory Yuca Dishes You Can Make With Ease
So what is yuca anyway and does it taste any good? Glad you asked! Yuca is also known as Cassava because it is a root from the Cassava plant. The shape and size of the Yuca root resemble that of a sweet potato. Its grainy texture and starchy qualities make for a sweet and nutty taste.
Yuca frita (fried yuca or yuca fries) is a fantastic side dish when you want to try something a little different. Fried yuca is similar to French fries. It has a mild flavor, with a creamy and slightly grainy texture. When they’re fried, the outside gets crispy and the inside remains creamy. #yucafrita #friedyuca #yucafries
