Smashed Yucca

5 cups yucca, peeled and cut into 1” chunks

1/2 medium onion, diced

1/2 cup ghee

1 tsp fine Himalayan sea salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Place chopped yucca in a medium sauce pot.

Add water to completely cover yucca.

Cover the pot.

Set pot of yucca over high heat and bring to a boil.

Lower heat and slack the lid.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes until fork passes through easily.

Remove from heat and drain water away.

Add ghee, salt and pepper. Stir to combine, then smash it with a potato masher until just coarsely mashed - allow some chunks to remain.

Do NOT try to make the yucca smooth like mashed potato - it will turn to glue!!
