1 1/2 pounds yuca, peeled, halved and cut into chunks
1 teaspoon salt
6 cloves garlic, mashed into 1 teaspoon salt
Juice of 2 lemons or sour oranges
1/2 cup olive oil
2 onions, chopped fine
Place yuca in a saucepan; add water until yuca is just covered. Add salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender - about 30 minutes. Drain. (Remove any "woody" parts from center of yuca.) Mash garlic cloves into salt with mortar and pestle. Add garlic, lemon juice, and onions to olive oil in a separate pan and heat until bubbling, and then pour over yuca. Toss the yuca and all ingredients lightly while continuing to sautй over medium heat until barely browned, but not crisp.
