Stewed Cassava or Yuca (Yuca Sudada)

Yuca Sudada

This is a great way to cook yuca as this vegetable by itself is bland. This Yuca Sudada recipe is very popular in Colombia. Serve as a side dish with grilled meats or fish.

Buen provecho

In Guyana, we’d add the boiled cassava to the stew, toss and then serve. I like your method too.
