(Jicama) Jicama or Yambean is also known as a Mexican potato. The one in this photo has been waxed to preserve freshness in the market, which is the reason for its shiny appearance. Jicama is a crunchy, sweet, juicy tuber that is great to eat raw; just peel it and cut in strips or cut into salads or eat them with dips. The label says that it is often paired with chili powder, lemon, lime, oranges, ginger or even soy sauce. See the nutritional chart (below) for more information.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
