Ranch Yuca Fries Recipe

Yuca Fries Recipe

Ingredients

Scale

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp dried parsely
  • 1 tbsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Yucca

  • 2 yuca, cassava
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • pinch of sea salt

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the outside waxy layer from the yuca (just as you would a potato).
  3. If the yuca is long, slice it in half, then slice into 1/2″-3/4″ fries or batons.
  4. Add the fries to the boiling water and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges start to fray and they’re fork tender.
  5. Drain the fries and place in a large bowl. Drizzle them with avocado oil and sea salt and toss to coat.
  6. Lay the fries in a single layer on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. While the fries are cooking, make the ranch dressing. Add all of the ingredients to a small food processor and blend until finely chopped. 
  8. Serve the yuca fries immediately with the ranch dressing.
