It is DAY 13 of the "Gluten Free Recipes" series and the gorgeous Heather Nauta from is joining our party today. I connected with Heather through JL Goes Vegan, and I have absolutely fallen in love with her. For those of you who don't know Heather, she is amazing and has a really cool story.

She moved to the West Coast, where, with her partner, Phil, she started experimenting with veganism, raw foods, Eastern philosophies, holistic principles, and organic gardening. After both experiencing dramatic weight loss, increased energy, and improved mental clarity, but muscle loss, Heather become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, through the RHN program at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in search of answers. Having become an accomplished cook after experimenting with all of the different whole foods philosophies, she also studied at the School of Natural Cookery.

Jicama with Mango Basil Sauce

Jicama with Mango Basil Sauce

from Heather Nauta

Serves 615 MINS

flavor ideas:

  • fresh thyme and chives
  • fresh mint and ginger
  1. Put the grated jicama in a large bowl.
  2. Puree the mango in your food processor or blender with just enough liquid to make a thick sauce.
  3. Add the seasonings, and the tahini if you want to make a thicker, creamier and more filling sauce.
  4. Let the jicama marinate in the sauce, covered in the fridge, for an hour or more to break down some of the starch.
  5. Serve over a bed of greens, topped with cashews or a sunflower seed-nutritional yeast mixture.
