Yuca Donuts – Gluten Free Cassava Donuts – These donuts are a popular Nicaragua street food.
If you’re Gluten Free, cassava/yuca should be your best friend in all it’s forms. Whether you are eating the vegetable itself or indulging in a sweet bowl of tapioca pudding (yep tapioca is made from yuca) or using tapioca starch in baked goods, cassava/yuca helps you easily create gluten free meals.
The next time you are struggling to create a gluten free dish whether it’s breakfast or dessert, remember yuca and tapioca and the choices will be endless.
A few days ago it was Ube Donuts and today we have Yuca Donuts. I found out about these when I was watching an episode of Street Eats, a Travel Channel program that explores the street foods from countries all over the world. As they were going through Central America, the yuca donuts of Nicaragua intrigued me. Although maybe not an exact replica, this is at least a close cousin to the one I saw on the show.
