1 whole yucca
60g melted butter

For the huancaina sauce

4 tbsp canola oil, divided
1/2 red onion, diced
1 aji amarillo, rib and seeds removed, diced
1 clove garlic
Salt and pepper
140g fresh mozzarella cheese
1 hard-boiled egg, plus chopped hard-boiled egg, for garnish, optional
1) Peel yucca and cut into 4 cylinders; then split in half and remove the root. Place yucca in a large pot. Add enough water to cover yucca and season with salt. Bring to a boil and simmer until fork tender, about 30 mins.

2) Remove from heat and allow to cool. Brush with butter and place on griddle. Cook about 3 to 4 mins per side. Remove and season with salt.

3) Meanwhile make the huancaina sauce: In a skillet, heat 2 tbsp oil over medium heat. Add onion, aji, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and saute until onion becomes translucent. Remove from heat and add to blender. Add cheese and hard-boiled egg and blend. Slowly drizzle in double cream and remaining 2 tbsp oil until it reaches sauce consistency. Adjust salt before serving.

4) Serve yucca with huancaina sauce, garnished with hard-boiled egg, olives, and coriander.
