Pan de Yuca

January 30, 2016

1] Pan de Yuca (Yuca-Queso Bread)

Recipe adapted slightly from The Latin Road Home. Makes 16-20 rolls.

Ingredients

  • 1 c. yuca flour (yuca starch)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 lb. queso fresco, finely grated
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 TBS whole milk
  • 1 TBS unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and sugar until evenly mixed.
  3. Add the queso fresco, egg, milk, and melted butter and knead with your hands until thoroughly mixed and fairly smooth.
  4. Form the dough into 16-20 small round balls. Place on the baking sheet (with space in between, they will spread out as they bake).
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with tomato Aji hot sauce or yoghurt dip.

2] Tomato Aji hot sauce ( cooked )

Ingredients

  • 4-5 tomatoes or tamarillos fresh 
  • 2 ajies or hot peppers (serranos, red chilies, habaneros)
  • 2 tbs finely chopped white onion or scallions 
  • 1 tbs finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Blanch the tomatoes to make it easier to peel them.
  2. Blend the tomatoes with the hot peppers (seeded and deveined if you want it very mild )
  3. Transfer the blended mix of tomatoes and hot peppers to a small sauce pan, add the water (you can add more if you want a more liquid sauce) and cook on medium heat for about 5-8 minutes.
  4. Turn off heat and add the onion, lime juice, cilantro and salt to taste.
  5. Enjoy with Pan de Yuca.
