Flavorful and a welcomed substitute after months without potatoes, I have come upon Jicama, yum!

 Jicama, also known as yambean, is bulbous root vegetable that has crisp and color when cut into similar to an apple.

 I had a hard time locating this root and eventually had to ask the produce manager at my local Publix to order it for me (they will do this if you ask!)


First I peeled the Jicama and then sliced it as I would a potato. Once it was cut to the size I liked I placed it into a pot with boiling water for approximately 10 minutes and then poured them into a strainer.


I allowed them to cool a bit before placing them into a large boil with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder and tossed until coated. I spread them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and placed them into the oven at 400 degrees for 50 minutes, flipping them at about half way through.
