Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Servings: 3-5
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

3 lbs of yucca
1 head of garlic
2-3 limes
2 teaspoon of salt
1 medium onion
1 cup of olive oil
Scallions, parsley or cilantro, finely chopped

TIP: If yucca is cold, place them in a bowl with tap hot water 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

Remove bark from yucca with a knife. Cut in half and remove the thick fiber found in the center of the yucca

Rinse well

In deep pot, add sufficient water to cover the yucca and add salt

Cook until tender or al dente if you prefer

Drain and set aside in a mixing bowl

In a skillet, heat oil and add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent.

Remove from heat and pour over the yucca.

Squeeze the limejuice on top and serve
