Ingredients and Preparation
Ingredients Measures
Fresh yucca (cassava), cut into 3-inch sections and peeled 1 pound
Nonstick cooking oil spray


Directions
  1. In a kettle, combine the yucca with enough cold water to cover it by 1 inch. Bring the water to a boil, and slowly simmer the yucca for 20-30 minutes, or until it is tender.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Transfer the yucca with a slotted spoon to a cutting board, let it cool, and cut it lengthwise into ¾-inch-wide wedges, discarding the thin woody core.
  4. Spray cookie sheet with the nonstick cooking oil spray. Spread yucca wedges on cookie sheet, and spray wedges with cooking oil spray. Cover with foil paper and bake for 8 minutes. Uncover and return to oven to bake for an additional 7 minutes.
