Jicama & Guacamole
Recipe by Carley Nadine
This combination is the perfect snack filled with lots of fibre and healthy fats. It’s a fun and delicious way to try a different vegetable and add a little variety into your diet. What is Jicama? It’s a root vegetable traditionally grown in Mexico and Central America. The taste is juicy and crunchy, with a slightly sweet flavour. The taste resembles a cross between a potato and a pear.
Cut your avocados in half, remove the pit, and remove the avocado from the skin. Add to a medium sized bowl and mash the avocado with a fork.
Add a crushed garlic clove, fresh lime juice and salt to taste. Mix until combined.
Cut the jicama in half and then cut off the skin. Then cut it lengthwise then cut again into thick strips.
Dip the jicama in to guacamole and enjoy!
Substitutions: Don’t like garlic? Omit it, add diced onion or a pinch of garlic powder. Don’t have lime? You can use lemon instead. Like some heat? Add some hot sauce or jalapeño.
