If you are one of those people who loves fishing around in a pile of fries for all the little crispy bits, then you will loooove yuca fries. After you boil them, they start to break apart a little, giving them maximum surface area for that crispy goodness. This is the perfect accompaniment for the black bean burgers.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 large yuca, peeled
4 tablespoons granulated brown sugar
2 teaspoons sea salt
avocado or olive oil
2 tablespoons dried parsley

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Cut the yuca through the middle and then place the open end flat on the chopping board and carefully cut the tough skin away in downward strokes (hold it at the top so as to protect your fingers).
  3. Once the skin is removed, cut the yuca into thick fries and then place in a large saucepan of water with the sugar and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes until they are just starting to become pierceable with a fork.
  4. Drain the water and add the avocado oil and remaining salt to the pan. Place the lid on top and shake until all of the fries are well coated.
  5. Spread the fries in a single layer on one or two baking trays and place in the oven for 10–15 minutes. Remove, flip and cook for another 10–15 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Sprinkle with dried parsley and serve.

Note

  • This method also works great for straight-up potato fries.
