How about using a SAD recipe and replacing the potato with jicama? Could that be tasty?

The jicama is starchy enough. Nice fresh almond milk and maybe a little tamari or miso for depth of flavor/balane in the soup. Yumm. Please keep us posted on the results when you make it. Very interested as soups are one of my favorite things during cold weather.

I would think walnuts and water could probably also replace the potatoes (and dairy, if there is some in the SAD version).

I made this last night and it was tasty! I didn't measure but I'll post the ingredients. P.S. Jicama is so filling and combined with almond milk I could only eat half a bowl and even then I went to bed feeling overly stuffed. Be careful!
1 small leek
1-2 cloves garlic
several dashes rosemary
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt/pepper as desired
Almond milk as needed to blend
I made the mistake of using almonds whole...this came out way too thick and strangely textured. I recommend just the milk. :)

Sounds good, but I don't understand why you'd want to replace the potato...it's still a veggie, and although it's a wee bit starchy, it still has many good qualities.

Conflicting views about eating raw potatoes. Personally I could never stomach a raw potato after growing up with the message that they are toxic raw. But if you can/want to...go for it.

When I was a kid, I always swiped a few raw potato pieces in the kitchen. I love the taste of raw potatoes. I'm 58 and still alive. Only potatoes left in the light where they turn green develop a toxin. Just peel off the green parts. When using potatoes in this recipe, I would slice them and soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to get some of the starch out.
