A quick way to make grain free "noodles".
Course Side Dish
Appliances Stove
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes


  • water
  • sea salt
  • jicama


  1. Wash the jicama. Cut off as much as you will be using. Peel the skin off the jicama and also remove the tougher layer just below the skin.
  2. Start some water boiling in a pot on the stove. Allow enough water to cover the amount of jicama you will be cooking. Add some sea salt to the water if desired.
  3. Shred the jicama with a grater.

  4. Add the jicama to the boiling water. Return to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Drain. Serve as a side dish as you would rice or noodles. It has a crunchy texture but is nice to eat if you can't tolerate grains (which I can't right now).
  6. I've used it as a base for stir fries and it is good.
