First of all, a very happy birthday to my friend Lauren! Lauren makes stunning jewelry. You should go check it out. =)

I go through pretty intense food-phases, where all  I want to eat is one kind of vegetable. One month of nothing but kabocha squash; one month of nothing but red cabbage; one month of  broccoli. This time out it is all about yucca. Delicious, lemon-glazed, agave dipped yuca fries.


  • 2 Yucas
  • 2 Tbs Agave Nectar
  • Salt
  • 1 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1/2 lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Using a peeler, peel off the thick, wood-like skin.
  3. Slice the yuca. Try to keep the slices consistently thick so they cook evenly.
  4. Toss the yuca with olive oil.
  5. Lay the yuca out on baking pan.
  6. Sprinkle with salt.
  7. Bake the yuca for 10 minutes and flip them over.
  8. Cook for another 10 minutes or until the yuca fries are golden brown.
  9. Lightly brush the fries with lemon juice.
  10. Dip the fries into agave nectar.

I love my fat orange kitty.
