Yuca Puffs




The Yuca madness continues! Hands down we just cannot get enough of yuca. It has completely replaced the potato in our home for now.

This usually turns out "puffier" but I used leftover mashed yuca I had already added coconut yogurt to- if you want a more rounded yuca puff just mash the yuca plain. The flavor is rich, deep and really goes well with everything. We have made this with finely minced red and green pepper, peas, really anything goes! This replaces a biscuit or side dish in our house, but with the chicken added it really makes a great portable to go lunch too!

1 medium sized Yuca boiled and mashed(I added 1/4 cup coconut yogurt- if you want rounder "balls" do not add coconut yogurt to your mashed yuca)
1 finely shredded carrot
1 finely chopped boiled chicken breast
4 cloves of garlic finely minced
1/2 a yellow onion finely minced
2 eggs well beaten
1 Teaspoon of baking powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
Dash of cayenne pepper


Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Saute onion,garlic,carrot in grapeseed oil or coconut oil.

Mash the Yuca up as if you were making mashed potatoes. Then mix all of the ingredients up in the bowl together.

Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet. Bake 25-30 minutes.
