    Yucca Bread

    Shop Now
    I just got back from a cruise and one of the ports was Labadee, Haiti. I watched some of the natives grate some Yucca and then bake it on a stone over coals. It only took about 5 to 10 minutes to cook with no other ingredients and it turned into bread. Anyone ever try this? This would be primal, right?

    Brazilian natives do the same thing, it's called 'beiju' (http://www.flickr.com/photos/delfimmartins/4072525420/). I wish I could find a good recipe. All the recipes I've found so far use refined yucca starch.

    Basically there was no recipe....they grated the yucca right there and just put it on the hot stone and in minutes it cooked to a bread.

    So it's just grated yucca? I'm going to try it the next time I buy yucca.

    Yes, I watched the guy grate it and then bring it directly to the hot stone....I didn't see him add anything else. I haven't seen yucca in my supermarket but when I do, I'm going to try it.

    I usually boil it, cut into sticks and then roast it with olive oil and salt. It's OMG delicious. It's amazing.

    I get it at a Cuban restaurant by my house. I Love dipping it in the mojo sauce that comes with the pork.

    Hmmm, sounds strangely familiar to the article that is not to be mentioned (something about 'grains').
