1 large leek

2 c. jicama, peeled and sliced or diced fairly small

6 oz. red bell pepper, sliced small

4 T. unsalted butter

Dash each salt and black pepper

DIRECTIONS: Cut root tip and tip of green leaves off leek.  Slice in half lengthwise.  Separate layers and rinse out any dirt between the layers.  It’s notorious for hiding from you, so don’t be lax on this step.  Chop leek into ½-¾” pieces.  Melt butter in non-stick skillet.  Add jicama and saute for 2 minutes.  Add leeks and saute until they begin to wilt.  Add red pepper and saute until all vegetables are fairly tender.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

    1. I was quite surprised at how good this was. Even my husband liked it, and he doesn’t usually get very excited about jicama cooked or raw.
