Cassava fritters with chorizo

Cassava is a root vegetable which is an important crop in many countries. The root contains a lot of starch and is therefore nutritious. The taste resembles that of potato, but with a firmer structure. However, cassava unfortunately has a slightly less pleasant quality: when it is eaten raw, it can be poisonous. Fortunately, there is a very simple solution: baking, cooking or frying!

1 Cassava
150g Chorizo, cut into small cubes
15g Chives, very finely cut
1 egg

1. Peel the cassava and grate it with a coarse grater.
2. Place the grated cassava in the middle of a clean tea towell and fold together. Squeeze as much moisture out as possible.
3. Mix the cassava in a bowl together with the chorizo, chives, egg and pepper and salt to taste.
4. Heat a layer of oil in a skillet and fry the cassava fritters over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes until golden brown.
