Recipe Directions

blend all the above ingredients. cut jicama into small cubes and either place on parchment paper and put in oven at approx 100 degress to slightly dehydrate, or use a dehydrator. I dont have a dehydrator so i used my oven. top the jicama with the lemongrass mixture, some chopped basil and some ground peanuts or other nut of your choice. Enjoy!

Chaddb's Thoughts

i took my old lemongrass tofu recipe and modified it to make it raw. It worked great. This dish is quite spicy, which i like, but you may want to modify the chili flake and the serrano chile to tame the spicy a bit. I didn’t de-seed the serrano before blending, if you remove the seed it should turn down the volume on the spice.
You may need to play with the quantities of the sunflower seeds and the water. I originally had it as 1/3-1/2 cup sunflower seeds and 1/3-1/2 cup water. Neither are exact measurements, i added as i went to achieve the consistency i desired.

FANTASTIC...I made this after a trip to the Thai market area here in North Hollywood. I didn't use the basil oil or chili flake but it was still teriffic! However, I used soaked/raw lentils instead. They didn't digest AT ALL. Next time, I'll stick to sunflower seeds :-D

I miss tofu :( This looks like a really good substitute. Does the jicama get soft in the dehydrator/oven or is it still crispy?

This looks frickin awesome! I love me some Thai food and I don´t have a dehydrator either so this will work a charm.
