Back to All Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 large jicama, peeled and cut into French fry sized strips
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil (or other high temp. cooking oil)
  • ½ tsp turmeric (optional)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Guacamole for serving

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400º.
  2. In a large bowl, toss jicama with oil.  Season with spices, salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Arrange seasoned jicama on a parchment lined baking tray, being careful not to overcrowd the tray. 
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, remove from oven, turn the jicama strips, and continue baking another 20–30 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with guacamole.

Note: Jicama fries have a much different texture than potato fries, so be prepared! They are crunchy and less starchy, but still delicious. If you want the jicama to be softer, some recipes call for boiling or steaming the jicama before adding spices and baking. Boiling adds an extra step and can cause you to lose some of the water-soluble nutrients. The crunch can be a refreshing change!
