If you are tired of the same french fries for lunch, here is a great swap: cassava fries with mojito sauce.
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Venezuelan
Keyword: cassava fries, mojito sauce, yucca fries, yucca root
Servings: 4 people
  • 1 big yuca root
  • Vegetable oil to fry as needed
  • 1 tbsp salt
Mojito sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ onion
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple vinegar
  • 1 lime
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Peel the yucca root and cut it into pieces that are slightly bigger than regular french fries --- about 1/2"-3/4" sticks. You can see the pictures as a reference. The sticks don't have to be perfect.
  2. In a pot boil enough water to cover the cassava sticks. Add 1 tbsp of salt and the cassava sticks. Let them boil for 15 minutes.
  3. In a pan add enough vegetable oil to cover partially the cassava fries. Fry the cassava sticks until they are golden and crispy in all sides.
  4. In a food processor add all the ingredients for the mojito sauce and pulse until you get a chunky sauce. You don’t want a liquid sauce. Serve along with the cassava fries.
