21. Jicama Rice

This recipe is from Raw Food Real World by Sarma Melngailis and Matthew Kenney.

The book is one of my favorites and I look at it at least five times a day for reference. The recipe for jicama rice is wonderful and so simple. The ingredients are the same but I have modified the instructions a bit. Instead of putting the rice in the dehydrator to dry out, I strain the mixture through a nut bag and fluff it with a fork.

6 c chopped jicama
1/2 c pine nuts
1 T plus 2 t sea salt
1/4 c rice wine vinegar
3 T agave nectar

Pulse jicama and pine nuts in a food processor until chopped to the approximate size of rice grains. Strain mixture through a nut bag to remove excess moisture.

In a large bowl, gently fluff rice with a fork. Add sea salt, vinegar and agave nectar.
