Cassave

Cassave, also known as yuca, is very nutrious. The root is a major source of carbohydrates and vitamines B/ C and is very digestive. The outside is brown and rough while the pulp is white and solid.

It can be eaten in many ways. Some cassaves can be eaten raw, but the bitter cassave should be cooked as it contains the toxic hydrogen cyanide. The soft-boiled root has a delicate flavor and can replace boiled and fried potatoes, but it can also be used in soups, purees and stews. Furthermore the root is often dried after cooking so it can be ground to flour for flat bread.
