When I decided that I was going to be making Candle 79’s Cashew Cheese-Stuffed Yuca Cakes today, and I knew that (a) there was going to be a lot of yuca and (b) that I would get hungry before the yuca cakes were ready, I thought it would be fun to find a second recipe to make. There is a famous Cuban dish (a national dish, to be exact) called Yuca con Mojo. So simple, but so good!
1/4 of a big yuca, cooked
1/2 red onion
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Parsley, small bunch, chopped
Peel the yuca and cut it into chunks and cover with water in a big pot. Boil until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain.
Dice the onion and sauté in olive oil. Add the mince the garlic and add to the onions, cooking on a low flame until fragrant. Add the lemon juice and chopped parlsey. Add the yuca to the pan and toss well. The yuca will absorb the lime juice and oil. Enjoy!
