  • Summary

    This slightly unusual side dish takes the place of your standard green beans, lending a light and crunchy contrast to the heavier, puréed dishes in this menu. (Most people don't think of cooking jicama, but we love its crisp water-chestnut-like texture, raw or sautéed.)

    Ingredients

    • 1 (2 1/2-lb) bunch of celery
    • 1 1/4 lb jicama
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
