Yuca, the root of cassava plants, is a side dish on Cuban and other Latin American menus. Boiled and cut into bite-size hunks, it is not quite like any other vegetable, although its soft, white flesh is reminiscent of a well-baked potato. The pieces can be deep fried or presented glistening with garlicky oil and garlanded with slices of grilled onion.
