Fresh Cassava

Cassava is a nutty-flavored, starchy root vegetable or tuber. Native to South America, it's a major source of calories and carbs for people in developing countries. In the United States, cassava is often called yuca and may also be referred to as manioc or Brazilian arrowroot.

Cassava is a calorie-rich vegetable that contains plenty of carbohydrates and key vitamins and minerals. Cassava is a good source of vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin. The leaves, which are also edible if a person cooks them or dries them in the sun, can contain up to 25% protein.

Cassava can be cooked just like potatoes in many dishes, it can be boiled and pureed, mashed, roasted and is widely used to make fries. You can store fresh Cassava in the fridge or in a cool pantry/cupboard for up to a month, however once cooked you should aim to consume it within a day.
