The maca plant (lepidium meyenii) is a mat-like perennial that grows between 13,000 and 14,500 feet above sea level in the high Andean plateaus of Peru. Its tuberous roots resemble those of its relative― the radish. Organic maca pudding and jam are popular among Andes natives.
HOW TO ENJOY:
Maca blends well with cereal, ice cream, juice, milk, yogurt, smoothies, and desserts, and can be added to a variety of other recipes.
