easy prep time 5 mins | cook time 35 mins | SERVINGS 6


    ½ cup olive oil

    1 medium onion, thinly sliced

    6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

    2 tbsp LaFe White Vinegar

    1 bag LaFe Frozen Yuca




    In a 12-inch skillet, heat the oil on medium. Add the onion. Cook for 7 min., until almost soft, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic and vinegar. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 25 min., until onions are soft and garlic is fragrant but not browned, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm on low.


    Meanwhile, heat a large pot of salted water to a boil on medium-high. Add the yuca and return water to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 20 min., until yuca is very tender. Drain and transfer yuca to a cutting board. Remove and discard any tough cores from centers of yuca.


    Transfer yuca to a wide serving bowl. Pour warm onion mixture over yuca, gently stirring to combine. Cover and let stand 15 min., until yuca absorbs oil. Serve immediately.
