Jicama Perogies

This is another recipe from RAWvolution. It's pretty simple and really delicious. It's as easy as slicing jicama very thin on a mandolin slicer and mixing up a batch of cashew cheese in a food processor! A dollop of cheese is placed in the center of a slice, and then another slice of jicama is placed on top. Voila! Raw Perogies!

Jicama is a root vegetable that is used a lot in Mexican and Asian cooking. It has a crisp texture that resembles a raw potato or a pear. It is sweet and starchy, reminiscent of apples or raw green beans. It is usually eaten raw and is often paired with chilis and lime juice. Jicama is high in dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, B vitamins and vitamin C. It's also low in calories and fat free.
