French fries are always a great side for many meals and sometimes they're just great alone with dipping sauce.

Cookbook author Erika Schlick has a great recipe on how to make Oven Baked Yuca Fries with Truffle Oil.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound yuca, peeled and sliced into 1/2-inch wedges
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of high-quality truffle oil

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 425 F

2. Peel and cut the yuca into ½ inch wedges (French fry shape and size).

3. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, fill pot ¾ of the way full with water. Add olive oil and sea salt and boil for 10-15 minutes until the edges of the fries start to fray a bit. Note: Cassava cannot be eaten raw, and needs to boiled first to remove any cyanide present in the plant.

4. Strain, rinse and pat dry the yuca and layout on a parchment lined baking sheet, you might need two depending on the size of your fries.

5. In a small bowl mix the coconut oil, garlic powder, and sea salt and use a pastry brush to brush on the yuca fries making sure to coat all edges.

6. Bake for 30-40 minutes and flip over halfway through.

7. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before placing in a large bowl.

8. Sprinkle parsley, sea salt, and parmesan if using and toss fries in the mixture.

9. Next add 1-2 tablespoons of truffle oil and toss.

10. Serve with a favorite dipping sauce like Primal Kitchen Ketchup or on their own.
