Ingredients
  • 4 pounds fresh yuca (also called cassava; preferably 2 inches in diameter) or 3 pounds frozen
  • 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 cups hot milk
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
Directions
  • Trim ends from fresh yuca and peel remainder, removing all waxy brown skin and pinkish layer underneath.

  • Cut yuca into 3-inch-thick pieces. Boil yuca in salted water to cover by 2 inches until tender and starting to fall apart, 50 minutes to 1 1/4 hours.

  • Drain and transfer to a cutting board. Carefully halve hot yuca pieces lengthwise and remove thin woody cores. Return yuca to pot with 1 3/4 cups milk, garlic, juice, and salt. Coarsely mash yuca, adding additional milk if desired, and serve immediately.
