If you have been following us, you know that we post a weird vegetable recipe every Wednesday (#weirdvegwednesday). Jicama is a root vegetable similar to a potato or yam but actually is in the bean family. After you get through the brown exterior, the edible interior is a white flesh. It is crisp like a pear or apple and has a sweet flavor to it. Jicama is a great source of fiber and vitamin C. The fiber in Jicama also helps with digestion and has a prebiotic effect to it. We usually eat it raw but it can be cooked in stir fry or soups. It is great for salads or in this case we made a slaw out of it.
