Bolitas de yuca con Puerro

Someone was asking about what to do with yucca, so here is my veganized yucca ball (with leeks) recipe from the Dominican Republic.

2 lbs. yucca
3 T margarine
1 egg replacer
nutritional yeast
1 c chopped leeks
1/2 c flour
oil for frying

Boil the yucca until it's soft. Then you mix it with the margarine. Add the egg, a couple scoops of nutritional yeast (it's replacing 1 c of cheese, so you can add whatever amount you want), and the leeks. Then you put flour on your hands and make balls from the dough (about a tablespoon). Roll the balls in flour. Refrigerate them for 30 minutes. Roll the balls in the flour again. Heat oil in a pan and fry the balls until they brown on the outside. Put them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Sirvalas con su salsa preferida.
