There’s a whole world of bread substitutes out there for those of us that can’t or won’t eat grains. Lettuce wraps are a long-time favorite, but there’s also portobello buns and other greens that make nice warm wraps (like cabbage or collards). Well, today we’re adding jicama to the mix. It’s a soft, starchy veggie that’s hard to describe but a lot of fun to use. It has little flavor of its own, so it makes a great palette upon which to place your meal. In these simple, autoimmune protocol-friendly Jicama Sandwiches with lettuce, meat, pickles, and avocado, it’s a refreshing bread substitute for these hot summer days. Of course, the sandwich is great with other veggies too–like shredded carrot, sliced zucchini, or even apple slices. This is one of my favorite quick and easy meals for using up leftovers in the fridge, especially on a hot days when warm food and cooking sounds awful. With all the ingredients fresh from the fridge, this crispy, cool sandwich goes down a treat. Season to taste or add your favorite dressings for a new twist!
