Yucca Root

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the yucca with enough water to cover by at least 2 inches and add the salt.
  2. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes, until the yucca is fork-tender but still intact.
  4. Drain the yucca in a colander.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add the yucca and stir occasionally for 5 minutes, until slightly browned.
  7. Add the garlic and lemon juice and toss to coat the vegetables evenly.
  8. Cook for 2 minutes, just to release the aroma of the garlic, and add the cilantro and bell pepper julienne.
  9. Toss again just to mix and transfer to a warm serving platter.
