If you're looking for potato alternative, consider yuca. They are a starchy root and they are awesome boiled, fried, and everything in between. In Spanish, they are called "yuca frita."

What You Need:

Yuca
Water
2.5 cups of oil
Salt to taste

How To Make It:

1) Peel and chop yuca in fries
2) Take out the stringy, fibrous root in the middle of the yuca
3) Boil yuca in a large pot for about 5-7 minutes. Pat dry.
4) Heat a large pot of oil to medium-high heat
5) Fry for about 10 minutes.
6) Drain oil. Season with salt.

Yasssssssssss let it sizzle.

yum! def going to have to give it a try.
it tastes good. Yuca is sort of bland like potatoes. So when I boil them, I use salt and some lime juice
I love it! I really love it boiled too.
I've never had it boiled, but I'm sure it's much more healthier that way lol I'm all for the fried though.
I absolutely love yuca!!!!
