Expert Tips

If you want, sprinkle salted cheese on the yucca.

I like yucca a lot, maybe even more than potato. Although its taste is hard to describe, it goes well with nearly anything. It’s also very versatile as it can be boiled, fried and/or mashed. Steamed yucca is popular in Colombia and because of its simplicity it often makes an appearance in my house. Fortunately, I can find yucca in all the markets, but if you are having a hard time finding them fresh, you can also purchase them frozen to save time on pealing and cleaning. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage month I wanted to prepare a delicious portion of yuca chorriada, great with fish or beef.

Directions

  • 1 Cook the yucca in a pot with enough water to cover it. Add salt.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion until it begins to brown. Add the tomatoes and salt/pepper them. Stir and carefully cook for about 5 minutes at low heat.
  • 3 One the yucca has softened, serve on a dish and cover in the stew.
