T, my 12 year old, has a lot of food intolerances. The biggie I often talk about is the wheat because that is what has made us go moderately gluten free. But there are others like apples, oranges, peanuts, pecans, and the combination that makes him the most upset: Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes.
I mean, what 12 year old boy wants to know he cannot have french fries?
We’ve tried alternatives like carrot fries, plantain fries etc. But over the weekend we found what tastes as close as we could get:
Yucca is a root also called Cassava. It needs to be peeled and then cut up into matchstick pieces. This is not something for RA hands to do; Much too tough.
Then we deep fried them and they were very similar to potato fries.
They were fabulous next to my veggie burger, pickled beets, and pickles! Definitely something we will be doing again here.
Have you ever had Yucca? How do you prepare it?
