What is a Jicama and how do you cook with it? Paleo Potato Alternative!

15 May

It’s video time again! Can you believe I churned out two videos, two weeks in a row?! I can’t. Ha! Well, I’ve known about Jicama for a while now and had heard that people use it as a Paleo potato alternative but hadn’t tried it myself. They’re kinda of hard to find at my local grocer and when I do see them they look like they’re on their last leg.

During my last trip to the grocery store, I found a seemingly perfect one! So, I decided to make a video introducing you to this odd looking fellow (yes, I think it’s a boy) and share some examples of how you can eat/cook it. I’m only going from what I’ve heard and seen in recipe books as I haven’t tried it myself yet.

Have you cooked with Jicama or even used it fresh? I’m very curious and looking for recipes as I experiment with my own … Let me know. Also, please enjoy this little intro I put together for you. He’s cute in a rough and tubby kind of way.

P.S. Are you following me on Pinterest yet? Let’s pin together!

I've used jicama to make fries before. I'm intrigued about using it for taco shells. Can't wait to hear how it comes out.
