An easy side dish of Yucca or Cassava roasted with olive oil and herbs.

Course: Side Dish
Servings: 4
  • 1 1/2 lbs frozen yuca or cassava
  • 1/4 cup olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 yellow onion sliced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • 1 lime
  1. Put a large pot of salted water to boil. In the meantime, slice the onion and mince the garlic. Once the water comes to a boil, add the frozen yuca and let boil for 15 minutes.

  2. Drain the yuca and place in a baking dish or sheet.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees 

  4. In a bowl or measuring cup, add the olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and let sit for a few minutes.

  5. Pour a third of the olive oil mixture over the yuca. 

  6. Before putting in the oven, lightly cover with aluminum foil and cook covered for 15 minutes.

  7. Remove the aluminum foil and pour the remaining dressing. You may also spoon over any dressing at the bottom of the dish to avoid drying out the yuca. Put the yuca back in the oven and cook for another 15 minutes.

  8. Garnish the yuca with roughly chopped parsley and sprinkle some lime juice (optional).
