silent j

Do you know what this is?

I was first introduced to jicama (pronounced hick-a-ma) at The Prickly Pear in Mooresville, NC (yummy and one of my favorite Mexican restaurants!).

I've since kept an eye on it in the store, but they always seemed unfresh and weird. But then last week, Harris Teeter had them on VIC!

Peeled and sliced. Julienned would be better.

And coated in lime juice, cilantro, and Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime.

Excellent as a cold crunchy snack.

But even better on my mile high Nature Burger with avocado and sprouts.

More info on the yambean, or jicama from Wikipedia.

Nutritional information (go go Vitamin C and Dietary Fiber)

  1. Cool, a new food. I especially like the first bowl photo with the herb patterns on the glass and the slices. Fun!
