Jicama Fries

Jicama has a texture similar to potato with a slightly sweeter flavor, not dissimilar to apple. The nearly neutral flavor pairs well with many spice combinations, so get creative! A little lime juice would pair gorgeously with the chili powder. Or make them a dessert treat with a combination of cinnamon and nutmeg!

Ingredients

  • 1 large jicama, peeled and either spiralized with a wide setting or cut into fry shapes
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. chili powder

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Toss jicama with oil and spices. Spread evenly on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake for 10-15 minutes, watching during the last few minutes to avoid burning.
