One of the recipes is with Jicama root
What is Jicama?
Jicama, sometimes referred to as yam bean, Mexican turnip, or Mexican potato is an edible root vegetable native to Mexico. In Central America, jicama is often sold by street vendors and commonly eaten raw, and seasoned with lemon or lime juice and chili powder. In the United States, however, jicama is less common. But this tasty, nutrient-dense tuber — jicama’s mild flavor and satisfying crunch lend it to a myriad of culinary uses.
The vines of the jicama plant can grow up to 20 feet in length, but the leaves and seeds are actually toxic. The root is the only edible portion of the entire plant — the tough brown skin that gives way to juicy, white flesh on the inside. The flavor is sweet and starchy — think of a cross between a water chestnut and an apple.
Many call jicama a superfood, equating it with kale, acai berries, and quinoa. Jicama, along with sunchokes, packs a prebiotic called inulin, a big contributor to a healthier gut. In addition, jicama is rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A. Lastly, jicama is naturally low in calories, making it a smart starchy substitute for those watching their weight.
