Latin Rooted Vegetables

Jicama [Hee-ka-ma]

The white juicy meat is similar to a waterchestnut or crisp melon. Its flavor is sweat, a touch starchy and although rather bland, addictive. Great served raw and can be stir fried, baked or sautéed.



Yuca Root [YOO-ka]

Once the outer bark is removed, a Linen-white meat is revealed. Very dense in texture, the Yuca root is very starchy. Use in soups and stews to absorb moisture or as a thickener in deserts, It can be fried as fitters, baked or boiled. Use as you would potatoes.


Boniato [bou-nee-AH-tou]

A tropical version of a sweet potato, this unique vegetable embodies the flavor of a sweet potato, baking potato and chestnuts. Use as you would any potato.
