Crispy Yuca Fries
Meet yuca, aka cassava, a fibrous tuber that's easy to transform into crispy, crowd pleasing fries. Chef John lays down how to peel and cut these evenly. The secret to their irresistible texture is boiling the yuca for a few minutes beforehand. You'll then shallow-fry these and find that, just because they use less oil and boast a lower glycemic index, yuca fries might not taste much healthier than regular french fries.
