Cassava root

Cassava root is a long potato-like vegetable with a rough bark.  (Also known as Manioc and Yuca Root or Yucca Root). 

Tapioca and cassareep (the boiled down and spiced juice) are products of cassava.

The white interior of cassava is firmer than potatoes and has high starch content. Fresh cassava has thick, dark brown skin that resembles a tree's bark. Fresh cassava is available year round. Look for firm blemish free tubers. Store whole cassava as you would potatoes, in a cool, dark, dry place for up to one week. Peeled cassava covered with water and refrigerated or wrapped tightly and frozen for several months.

Cassava can easily be substituted for potatoes in soups and stews and it contains a high amount of vitamin C and carbohydrates. It is also a good source of dietary fiber and contains approximately 120 calories per 1 cup serving.

Add cassava with potatoes and other vegetables into beef, chicken, or vegetable-based soups and stews.
