Oven-Fried Yucca


Number of Servings: 6
Prep Time: 1 hr Skill Level: Average


1 pound (450g) fresh yucca (cassava), cut into 3 inch sections and peeled (or 1 pound peeled frozen yucca)
Nonstick cooking oil spray


1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. 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.

4. 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.

5. Uncover and return to oven to bake for an additional 7 minutes.
