This yuca rellena is a great side dish that is always a hit. It is a must have for any Mexican restaurant.
I used to love yuca rellena when I was a kid. It was almost always served on the side of an omelet or burrito. Well, there are now a lot of kids who won’t be eating it any longer for some reason. I still really like it though and was glad to hear that it’s still sold at restaurants.
Yuca rellena, also known as yuca arriba, is a dish consisting of the top and bottom parts of a yuca plant. Traditionally, it is served as a side with the meal. In today’s world, it is sometimes served as a garnish on top of rice or quesadilla.
Yucas are incredibly good sources of fiber and protein, and are often used in place of pinto beans (or beans in general) in recipes. This is because they are so similar in appearance and taste. The yuca is also a good food source for chia seeds and coconut milk.
It is also said that yuca is a fruit that can cure cancer because of its fiber properties. It also has a high water content and is rich in beta-carotene, calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamin C.
Yuca is a very low calorie, high fiber type of food.
In the past, yuca used to be a staple food in the Andes. And in the Aztec era it was a popular food in Mexico. But nowadays, it is mostly consumed fresh and with other fresh vegetables, which is why it is a great source of fiber and protein. And there is also a lot of evidence that this type of food has a positive effect on cancer.
And in case you are wondering, I ate yuca a few days ago. It was great.
However, a few days before I ate it, I was introduced to another type of yuca called “yuca rellena” which tastes a little bit sweeter. And guess what? It’s healthier for you. But I digress.
Well, it was delicious and I’m glad I ate it, but it is not something I would recommend to anyone. It is a lot more expensive than yuca rellena and you have to be willing to pay money for a product that has a lot of calories.
