Yuca Fries have been introduced by Funnybones Foodservice as an alternative to traditional potato or sweet potato fries, offering a unique twist to pub and bar food menus.
Available exclusively from Funnybones for the UK foodservice market, they are made from cassava, a root vegetable native to Central and South America that is also known as yuca (pronounced yoo-ka).
Much like potatoes, Yuca Fries form a crispy coating when they are cooked, with a soft but more densely textured centre.
Holding their crispiness well, they have a delicate flavour profile that works well with a number of dishes from burgers and chicken to fish or sandwiches or as a side dish with a choice of dips.
For best results, they are deep-fried from frozen in preheated oil at 180 degree Celsius for three to four minutes or until golden brown. They are available in 1 x 20 x 500g packs.
