RECIPE BACKSTORY
I love fusing my Latin Caribbean roots with Asian flavors... I have this running CHino Latino theme. Outside of America the Yucca root is the most popular starch. Twice the fiber of the potato & a fantastic flavor, adding the Asian influence of the zingy ginger is like a party in your mouth
