- Drain the yuca and save 1 cup of the liquid.
- In the same pot add the hogao, return the cup of liquid you saved and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes.
- Place the yuca on a serving plate and pour the warm mixture over top.
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.
