Total Time: 35

Yield: about 30 pieces.

Hot and crisp on the outside, tender and slightly sweet inside, yuca (a.k.a. yucca or cassava) makes for a fun twist on French fries.

Ingredients:

  • 1 3-pound package peeled, frozen yuca (Maria Elena uses Goya brand)
  • Vegetable oil
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • Huancaina Sauce

Instructions:

In a large saucepan, boil yuca tubers about 30 minutes or until softened but still holding their shape. Drain and cool to room temperature. Slice into 1/2-inch-thick batons (shapes will be irregular). Remove any tough fibers in the center.


Warm about 1/4 inch oil in a medium-size pan over high heat. Fry yuca on both sides until light brown, about 2 minutes per side. (Don't overcook.) Drain on paper towels and season with salt. Serve hot, with Huancaina Sauce to taste.
