Mock hash browns
I was bored with my jicama. I use it for something to use with my dips.
I did a search for cooked jicama and found a recipe for jicama hash browns on a primal site. Anyone ever do this? I am dying to try it.
Jicama Hashed Browns
1 cup shredded jicama
2 tablespoons high heat fat (like bacon fat, tallow, or duck fat)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Slice your jicama and soak it in hot water overnight to soften. In the morning, remove the skins and shred the jicama in a food processor. Use the pulse function – you don’t want to pulverize it. Dry the shredded jicama (either using a colander or dehydrator) and heat your fat in a pan over medium heat. Form patties and pan fry. After about ten minutes, flip them and cook for another five. When they’re golden brown and crispy, they’re ready. Salt and pepper to taste. Delicious with bacon and eggs (fry the bacon first and use the fat for the browns). Jicama patties won’t stay together like potatoes, but don’t worry if they fall apart. Just add a few eggs and some cut up sausage and make it a scramble.
