Default beef stew with jicama

I made a hearty beef stew with a ton of green veggies cut tiny so they
basically disappear but add body and of course beef and instead of potato I
used jicama since Susan mentioned it it..

so far two separate meals of it and zero raise in bg and it certainly
satisfies that potato itch in the stew plus a nice textural component.

thumbs up!

I use white turnips in my stew to kind of look like potatoes. I also have
big chunks of carrot and add whole crimini mushrooms at the end. I use a
big can of tomatoes(28oz) and redwine as the liquids in which the stew
stews. Of course, plenty of onions in chunks adn garlic, herbs of your
chioiceand plenty of FGBP.

Is this the movie with Robin Williams? Where the board game growed an indoor rain forest and stuff like that?

Yay! I love my veggies quite chunky though Good to find something
satisfying that has zero BG impact.

Default beef stew with jicama

yes I can eat pineapple but a apple slice or a carrot will send me through
the roof..logically..it probably has to do with the acidity levels and
enzymes..but anyhoo..

the jicama sort of has a apple/water chestnuts like texture so I donít know
how good it will be as a potato sub in a gratin..it is also watery which of
course isn't noticeable in a stew.

but I'm sure there's fixes etc to be done that will make it work.

Thanks for the report.

But aren't you the guy who can also eat pineapple without a spike?

I can't wait to try it in my gratin, or maybe even pureed as fauxtatoes.

Default beef stew with jicama

it is a softball sized root veggie that has a tough brown skin and a white
crisp flesh inside...sort of like a rutabaga..

we like to try things here as subs for things that would normally raise our
blood glucose levels.

tasty experiments as I call them

if youíve had success with turnip then I'm certain jicama isn't any
different.

if you wanted to really go all out you could thin slice it and dry in the
oven and then use it..much like those packaged potato meals do.

"Susan" wrote ...

Thanks for the info. White turnip is very watery, I have to drain and
blot it when I make puree from it, and it makes a great sub in gratin.





So far, so good. I can't imagine that jicama is any more watery than
small white turnips. One could always slice and blot for a while, if
concerned, but I'm not.

Ok gotcha thanks. Do you ever use Glycerine for a sweetener? It seems to be near as sweet as sugar with none of the nasty back bite of most of the other choices. Supposed to effect blood sugar not at all.
