Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Latin
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 pound frozen yuca chunks
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • Sea salt
  1. Bring a medium pot of water to boil, then add frozen yuca chunks. Boil for 10 minutes, then drain and allow yuca to cool enough to handle.
  2. While yuca is cooling, add coconut oil to empty pot and allow residual heat to let it melt. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees farenheit.
  3. Cut yuca chunks into thinner "fry"-like shape, as desired.
  4. Return yuca to pot with coconut oil and toss until all sides are fully coated.
  5. Spread yuca on a baking sheet and place in oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the fries are lightly browned and crispy. You may wish to turn them half way through, but it isn't necessary.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt while still warm and serve immediately.
