Yuca, also known as cassava, is one of the world’s most versatile vegetables. Use it fried, boiled, or mashed, yuca is a nutty-flavored starch tuber native to South America that is also found in Asia and parts of Africa. They look very much like its close cousins the yam and potato, with a rough, bark-like skin that must be removed by grating or peeling.
