Yuca Fries

1 kg yuca root, peeled and sliced into fries

2 cups vegetable oil, for frying


½ onion, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

70 g parsley, chopped

100 g coriander, chopped

½ cup vegetable oil

¹⁄³ cup white vinegar

Yuca Fries

• In a large pot, bring water with a pinch of salt to a boil (enough water to cover the yuca). Cook yuca for about 20 min until it is tender.

• Remove the yuca from the water and pat dry with paper towels.

• In a large pan, heat vegetable oil over a high flame. Drop the yuca fries in the oil and let them cook until they turn golden brown.

• Move them to a paper towel to drain off excess oil. Season to taste with salt.


• In a food processor, pulse all ingredients until well combined, about 2 min. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
