Move over sweet potato fries…there’s a new fry in town and you won’t look back! Crispy Cassava (Yuca) Fries are taking over the taste bud world.
Cassava whaaa? Yes, I thought the same thing about 6 months ago, but part of getting my little one involved in the kitchen is her picking out new vegetables or fruits we’ve never tried before. A while ago she picked out Cassava root. Its a brown, long root vegetable with a thick waxy peel. I had heard of it before because it is often recommended to those going on an anti-inflammatory protocol and they will use their flour as an alternative. Well, we decided to try it and now it is a family favourite and we have them almost weekly! Again, we always make a double batch because they are easy to reheat in the oven for a snack another day.
1-2 Yuca root aka Cassava
2-3 Tbsp coconut oil (or any oil really)
1/4 tsp of Himalayan salt
Crushed black pepper
