Directions

Step 1

Combine the yucca, chicken stock, vinegar, smashed garlic, and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, 9 to 10 minutes. Drain and let dry on a baking sheet.

Step 2

Combine the mayonnaise, ¼ cup cilantro, roasted garlic, lime juice, agave, and Sriracha in a small bowl.

Step 3

Heat the vegetable oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot to 350°F. In batches, fry the yucca for about 3 minutes, turning after each minute, until the fries are lightly golden. Drain on a paper towel-lined baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and garnish with cilantro while warm.

Step 4

Serve with the mojo mayo sauce.
