6 ways to eat yacon
1 Yacons are great simply peeled and sliced like fruit as a snack. 2 Try them grated with carrots and apples with a handful of roasted seeds and/or nuts, accompanied by a vinaigrette mustard dressing. 3 Use cubed yacons instead of apples in a Waldorf salad. You will need to splash a bit of lemon juice onto the cubes as they tend to brown very quickly. 4 Use yacon as a change from the traditional pear or pineapple upside down cake – use sliced yacon instead. 5 Add cubes to a tropical fruit salad with a squeeze of lemon or lime to stop them going brown. 6 Bake them either whole or as chips with strong flavours like garlic and parsley, ginger and turmeric, sweet chilli sauce or soy sauce.
