This Jicama saute slightly unusual side dish takes the place of your standard green beans, lending a light and crunchy contrast to the heavier, puréed dishes in this menu. (Most people don't think of cooking jicama, but we love its crisp water-chestnut-like texture, raw or sautéed.

this Jicama saute is Easy, delicious and fast to prepare. I used half a jicama and 4 stalks of celery to make 2 generous servings. I didn't have fresh parsley on hand so left it out. It was a big hit. Highly recommended. Peeling the jicama was time-consuming. Canned water chestnuts would be simpler and would offer a similar taste/texture. Dish was decent but not worth making again.

I thought this Jicama saute recipe was great, teally unusual. I'm a big jicama fan, I'd never thought to cook it. I upped the garlice quite a bit to give it a little more flavor, with the lemon it was very flavorful.

if you want to YIELD Jicama saute Makes 8 to 10 servings the ACTIVE TIME you need about 25 min with TOTAL TIME 25 min

INGREDIENTS Jicama saute

  1. 1 (2 1/2-lb) bunch of celery
  2. 1 1/4 lb jicama
  3. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  5. 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
  7. 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  8. 1 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

PREPARATION to make Jicama saute

Peel strings from celery with a vegetable peeler, then cut celery on a long diagonal into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Peel jicama with a sharp knife and cut into 2- by 1/4-inch matchsticks.

Heat oil in a 6- to 8-quart heavy pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté garlic, turning, until golden on all sides, about 2 minutes. Discard garlic.

Add celery to oil and sauté, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add jicama and sauté, stirring, until slightly translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and remove from heat.

cooks' note:
Celery and jicama can be cut 1 day ahead and chilled in a sealed plastic bag lined with dampened paper towels.

Peeling the jicama to make saute was time-consuming. Canned water chestnuts would be simpler and would offer a similar taste/texture. Dish was decent but not worth making again.
