Have you ever cooked with the tropical starchy root yuca? Depending on the country you're in, it's also called cassava, tapioca, and manioc (among others). It is a staple starch in many parts of the world. It's delicious, low FODMAP, and makes an excellent nightshade-free potato substitute! This recipe for Yuca con Mojo is a tangy traditional Cuban preparation of this delightful root. It tastes good at restaurants but it tastes GREAT when you make it from scratch at home!
