Yucca Root (Cassava) Fritters
1 medium-large yucca root/cassava root, peeled and grated
pinch sea salt and black pepper
pinch garlic powder
pinch onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoons anise seed
1 green onion, chopped finely
oil, for frying
1. Mix yucca in a bowl with seasonings, green onion, and anise seeds.
2. Heat oil to shallow fry. Place a spoonful of the mixture onto the palm of your hand and flatten it with the back of the spoon (or your hand) to make a flat round "cake" in your palm.
3. Fry for a 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. I like to fry mine a little longer to make them extra crunchy!
Enjoy alone, with ketchup, or any other sauce you like!
Source of recipe: I grew up eating these and I absolutely love them. I learned from my mom, but I've modified the original recipe to suit a vegan diet.
