Thanks for the recipe! I'm a big fan of quinoa, jicama, and pumpkin seeds, so you couldn't really go wrong. :) I've never had cooked jicama before, only raw in salads or plain. Sweet vegetables like jicama and the corn combine really well with the quinoa. The toasted pumpkin seeds were also a nice touch! I'll definitely make this again.
