If you like potatoes, then meet the veggie that taste way much better than potatoes, the Yautía.
Yautía is a starchy tropical root veggie mostly used in Caribbean, African and South American cuisines. It is also called Malanga. It comes in white and in purple colors, (my favorite). To use it, you simply peel it and boil it in a bit of salted water until tender and soft.
You can cut Yautía as you would a potato; in slices, in cubes or just cook it whole. The end result is a yummy soft product that you can use as is, or you can mash, add olive oil and spices, or use in stews as you would use a potato.
Tomorrow, my recipe of Turkey Meatballs over Yautía Cubes.
