Move over sweet potato fries, there’s another root vegetable you can pair with veggie burgers now. Meet jicama, a root vegetable native to South America full of prebiotic fiber. It’s pronounced HEE-Kah-mah. This low-carb root has amazing health benefits such as weight management, boosting immunity (thanks to its high levels of vitamin C), increasing circulation, lowering blood sugar and boosting brain function. While you can enjoy it raw, you can also bake up these fries and add a little spice.
