Jicama sticks with lime zest and a hint of chili

We make this at least once a week. These crunchy sticks are a great go to snack. They keep their crunch and stay tasty for up to 5 days in the fridge.  A Jicama is actually a Mexican potato that is crunchy and juicy.  The consistency is between an apple and a potato.  It has a unique slightly sweet taste that you really can’t resist.  You can eat it raw, or cook it like you would a potato.  I first discovered this odd looking veggie when I was looking for an alternative to a substitute for a potato.  Little did I know how good it is raw.  These Jicama sticks with lime zest and a hint of chili are a total crowd pleaser.  Great cut or sliced and served on crudite platters and served with dips.  One cup of Jicama only has 46 calories and has a whopping 6 grams of fiber. It is also a good source of potassium and packs a good punch of Vitamin C.  This makes for a perfect anti cancer diet recipe. Let’s keep the eat real simple theme going with this Jicama stick recipe.

 

Raw Jicama

Jicama – a Mexican potato, crunchy, sweet and low in carbs.

Here is how to peel a Jicama:

Rinse the Jicama and peel. Start at the top and take a small slice off. Now turn over and slice a small piece off from the bottom. Proceed to peel in downward strokes. The peel will come off fairly easy this way. Now slice in to 1/2 inch slices and then in to 1/2 inch sticks.

After that here is how to add the chili lime zest:

In a large bowl add your zest, lime juice, and chili powder.

Add Jicama sticks and toss well. Cover tightly and refrigerate until chilled. Serve.

Serving Ideas:

It is great with the baba ghanoush and the garlic red pepper hummus.
