Yuca Mangú, or Mashed Yuca with Garlic Sauce, is a breakfast staple in the Dominican Republic. Here, we feature frozen GOYA® Yuca, which boasts a mild, creamy consistency (similar to a potato) – the ideal canvas for the red-onion-and-garlic-spiked sauce. For an authentic Dominican breakfast, serve with sliced salami. Or, swap in Mashed Yuca for your mashed potatoes at your next family dinner!

Step 2

In large bowl, using potato masher, mash yuca with reserved water, 2 tbsp.olive oil, 1 tbsp. garlic and remaining adobo until smooth and combined; cover with foil to keep warm.
