Crispy Yuca Fries – More Uber Than Tuber?

Crispy Yuca Fries – More Uber Than Tuber? - Hi, friend Popular Recipes, in this article entitled Crispy Yuca Fries – More Uber Than Tuber?, we have prepared this article well and concise to be easy to understand for you to read and can be taken inside information. hopefully the contents of the post Article Appetizer, Article Latin Food, Article Potato, Article Side Dish, that we write this you can understand and useful. okay, happy reading.

These crispy yuca fries are often presented as a healthier alternative to fried potatoes, but the taste and texture is so good, I think it would be more appropriate to describe French fries as a less-healthy alternative to these. They really are that good, and do a great job of bridging the gap between regular fried potatoes, and sweet potato fries.

Once fried, the texture is remarkably similar to a russet or Kennebec potato (the variety most commonly used for fries and chips), and while these do have a slightly sweeter taste, it’s not nearly as pronounced as a sweet potato. Like I mentioned in the video, I always regret ordering sweet potato fries, since, to my palate at least, they’re just not savory enough, which is not the case with these.

Just be sure to boil them first, since they can be toxic eaten raw in larger amounts. Why you’d ever want to eat a big pile of raw yuca is beyond me, but the legal department wanted to mention that regardless. Anyway, once safely cooked, they can be pan-fried crispy as seen here, or deep fried, or place them on a foiled sheet pan, brush them with oil, and bake at 425 F., turning occasionally until they’re browned and crusty.  

I was going to finish by listing off other ways you can use this delicious root, but to save time I’ll just say that if a recipe works with regular potato, it will work with yuca. And maybe even work better, which is why I really do hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

- Yuca root (aka cassava), peeled, cut, and boiled until just tender in salted water
* Please note: on larger roots there may be a tough fibrous part running through the middle, which can be trimmed out after boiling. These didn't really have one, but you'll know if yours do. 
- olive oil, or other appropriate fat for frying
