Instructions Checklist
  • Peel and halve the yuca roots. Place yuca in a large pot with 1 teaspoon salt and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 20 minutes or until just tender. Do not overcook or it will get slimy/mushy. When cooked, let sit in the warm water until ready to serve.

  • Meanwhile, make Mojo sauce. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add garlic, onion, and remaining teaspoon salt and cook until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and whisk in the juice of one lemon.

  • Drain yuca and transfer to serving dish. Drizzle Mojo over top and serve warm.

The yuca was perfect. The mojo had way too much salt and too much oil. Next time I will sautee the garlic and onion with a tiny amount of oil without salt. I may also not add lemon juice.
