View Full Version : jicama+nori+?

I'm looking for a new idea for jicama. I'm not in love with the fries recipe. I'd like to come up with something creative that you could put in nori....
I was thinking of marinating the jicama in something, then rolling it in Nori with asian cabbage slaw and white miso...?
why do i crave such weird combos????

Sounds pretty good. Could the jicama be shredded to replace rice in a rollup? Don't know what flavor to marinade--maybe some orange and ginger? Ooh. With shredded cabbage would be pretty good. Something maybe creamy inside too. Now my brain is working overtime. Hope your experiment is enjoyable--sometimes even my flops at recipes turn out pretty darn good.

I used to use jicama in nori rolls (was in raw food, real world book). But it's a little to soggy for me (can dehydrate a little if you wish).
I now use cauliflower instead for mock rice. I'm making some nori rolls now for a raw potluck later today.

Cauliflower will always taste like cauliflower, not so good in a nori roll, since they are really more about the bland being inside the seaweed, then dipped in a sauce. I had some made with jicama, they were great, no sog, they didn't need dip for me. I don't think you ned to marinate the veggies, that would make them soggy. Run the jicama through the juicer, so it won't be soggy, use as the rice, and add smaller amounts of other things like long carrot shred shreds, avocado, strips of green onion, shredded cabbage, etc. I made the spanish rice with cauliflower, even with all the spices, it was still cauliflower, and I knew no one else would eat it, so I had to eat it all, my guts didn't get over it for a few days

thank you! Yes I made it with the cauliflower and found the bloat to be EXCRUCIATING. Never again for me. :p . I like the idea of juicing it and using the fiber for rice. Great idea! thanks!
