What do you do with jicama?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I know its great for salads but is there anything else (that tastes yummy) it can be used for?

Never worked with it, but I believe it can be treated the same ways that you might treat a potato or sweet potato, i.e. mash, boil, fry, puree, bake, etc.

Jicama is great for making various slaws.

 

It also makes a fine substitute for crackers. Just peel it, slice it, and pile on the goodies.

I've used it, peeled and cut into small cubes, in stir fry.  It's pretty yummy.
