Jicama Hash Browns
This is SO good! Quick, easy to make, and super simple as far as ingredients go. And did I mention it is super yummy? It is! You can serve this anytime you want a starchy side dish. I just ate some for lunch. YUM!
Peel the jicama. If you can find jicama that is not waxed, it is much easier to peel. (This jicama was waxed.)
Grate enough jicama for each person. Allow at least 1/2 cup shredded jicama per person.
Drizzle some olive oil into a non-stick pan.
Add the jicama to the pan. Either add it in one piece, kinda like a potato pancake or add it in shreds.
Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally, unless you are trying to keep it in one piece. If you are trying to keep it in one piece, just press down on it once in awhile with a spatula.
Season with salt, pepper and a heaping spoonful of love. You can also add any other spice you enjoy and tolerate.
Flip the "pancake" and cook for another 5 minutes. Or just keep stirring and cooking the hash brown shreds until they are as browned as you like them.
Add more seasoning if desired.
Note: Jicama is not on anyone's list as being high in histamine. It's not on anyone's list as being low in histamine either. So...be aware of that fact and test it carefully if you haven't eaten it before! I seem to do OK with it.
Pepper is ranked "2" on the SIGHI Histamine Food Compatibility List. Avoid using it if you want low histamine.
