These Baked Yucca Fries with Sriracha Mayo Dip have been my highlight of the week! Growing up eating yucca, it’s so exciting to be able to play around in the kitchen with this delicious vegetable. 

Yucca is a tuberous veggie just like potatoes and sweet potatoes, which makes it a great substitute.

A one cup portion provides a good source of fiber and potassium, and an excellent source of vitamin C. It is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates that will still get nice and crispy like your standard fries would.

Now let’s talk about Sriracha. I could honestly put Sriracha on anything and everything, and so we did just that. The Sriracha Mayo Dip to accompany these fries is dressed to impress. Hellmann’s® makes a Vegan Mayo! Who knew? This mayo is certified vegan, made with non-GMO sourced ingredients and contains an excellent source of omega-3 ALA*. Mix with Sriracha and garlic powder and we are cooking. Let’s actually get to cooking.

Baked Yucca Fries with Sriracha Mayo Dip To begin, boil the yucca chunks for 25 minutes in a pot of water with the cover on. While that’s boiling, add the Hellmann’s® Vegan mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce and garlic powder to a small bowl or cup and mix it well with a spoon and scoop into a small bowl. Set aside the dip while we finish up with the yucca. Preheat the oven to 400F. Once the yucca is finished boiling, drain, allow to cool, and using a knife, cut each yucca chunk lengthwise into 5-6 pieces, so that they resemble thick french fries. Make sure you remove the fibrous pieces from the center while cutting. Assemble the yucca fries on a baking sheet, and drizzle olive oil over them evenly. Pop them into the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Then, open the oven and flip the yucca fries with a spatula. Bake for another 10 minutes. Once done, allow to cool and enjoy with our homemade Sriracha Mayo Dip!
