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.
