Creamy Mashed Yucca

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Servings: 3-5
Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes

2 lbs of yucca
4 tablespoons of sweet cream butter
½ cup of warm milk
½ tablespoon of salt
8 cups of water
1 cup of white cheddar cheese, shredded (garnish)
Scallions or Parsley , finely chopped (garnish)

TIP: If yucca is cold, let hot water run on the yucca for a few minutes. Peels comes off easier

TIP: Yucca is tender when a fork goes through. If you like it very tender, the fork will part it as you insert it

Peel yucca  and remove the root fiber from the center

In a pot, boil water, just as if you were boiling potatoes, and add the yucca. Cook until tender

Drain and mash well. Add butter, milk and continue to mash

Consistency should be smooth. Garnish with parsley and cheese
