  • Yucca should be cooked, but still be firm. It should be soft but still be a bit hard in the middle. If it gets too soft, it will not become crunchy;
  • If you want, you can put it right in the oven, but if you leave overnight in the refrigerator, the manioc gives a dry and becomes even more crunchy;
  • Put the pieces of cooked yucca in a baking dish greased with margarine or olive oil;
  • Drizzle all the pieces with a string of olive oil and lightly roast in a medium oven, browning on both sides;
  • The key is to spread a lot of yucca on the baking sheet. If you put too many pieces in the form, it will get wilted;
  • When the casserole is already golden brown on the bottom, turn it sideways. Do not expect it to turn golden on top, as the pieces may be burning underneath.
