jicama cubes

When we moved to Canada, it was hard to find Korean produce, My mother tried to find vegetables similar in texture to the produce in Korea. Here is a simple kimchi. I love the crispy textures and clean taste of jicama, especially when eaten fresh. Koreans enjoy freshly made kimchi just as much as the fermented kinds.

what you will need:

  • jicama

  • chives (or scallions)

  • shallots or red onions, minced (optional)

  • sesame seeds

  • dash of salt, to taste (optional)

peel the jicama, slice in half and remove the pit.  cut each halve into cubes and place in a bowl.

cut chives 1/2" length and toss into bowl.

add kimchi sauce (to taste) and mix to incorporate sauce evenly.  garnish with sesame seeds.  can be eaten immediately or made a few hours in advance.

it's delicious & good for you:

jicama is full of vitamins (vitamin C, potassium, folates, riboflavin, pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, and thiamin); minerals (magnesium, copper, iron, and manganese); antioxidants, dietary fiber and water.
