Yuca Chips Online Cooking Class

The first time I had yuca chips at a restaurant I was instantly hooked so I just had to make them at home! Baked Yuca Chips are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

I will warn you these are highly addictive, my husband and I ate the whole batch the instant I was finished photographing them! Baked Yuca Chips taste awesome all alone or with my Garlicky Green Guacamole.

Health Benefits of Yuca

Have you ever used yuca before? Yuca is a root vegetable that is also known as cassava and it is used to make tapioca flour. It is really popular in Africa, Asia, and South American cuisine. Yuca or cassava is a starchy tuber that has a sweet nutty flavour.

Health benefits include:

  • Being an excellent gluten-free carbohydrate
  • Containing moderate amount of B-vitamins that will help boost energy levels
  • Being a good source of blood pressure-regulating potassium
  • Containing important minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, iron, and manganese

Sometimes you will see yuca spelled yucca. According to Wikipedia, when it is spelled with a double ‘c’ it is referring to an ornamental plant, not the edible cassava root vegetable.
