A delicious, mild root vegetable native to Mexico. 

Jicama (also known as Mexican turnip or yam bean) is a crunchy, sweet yet starchy tuber. It has brown outer skin with a bright white interior. Despite the fact that it looks a lot like a potato, it doesn’t need to be cooked prior to being consumed as they do. 

Health Benefits of Jicama: 

Jicama is a great source of fiber and vitamin C, making it a great starchy carbohydrate for those looking to monitor blood sugar levels. It’s a particularly great source of inulin, a prebiotic fiber that helps to nourish the gut microbiome.
