  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Transfer the yucca with a slotted spoon to a cutting board, let it cool, and cut it lengthwise into ¾-inch-wide wedges, discarding the thin woody core.
  • Spray cookie sheet with the nonstick cooking oil spray. Spread yucca wedges on cookie sheet, and spray wedges with cooking oil spray. Cover with foil paper and bake for 8 minutes. Uncover and return to oven to bake for an additional 7 minutes.
