Yucca is a tubular root vegetable with white flesh. Frying it creates a dry fluffy interior similar to a potato but with a buttery flavor and a crisp exterior. You can buy fresh yucca at specialty stores such as the Asian market or frozen and pre cut at the Mexican market. It pairs well with the mushroom ceviche dish.
