Ingredients

  • 3 large jicama raw, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch fries slices
  • 3 tbsps. olive oil
  • 2 tsps. paprika
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dry parsley
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp salt or more to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Peel and cut the jicama into 1/4 inch fries slices. To save baking time, place in a pot with cold water and bring to boil. Once the water starts boiling, time 5 minutes of boiling time.
  • Remove from the heat and drain the water in a strainer. Let them cool and then transfer to a 1/2 sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • add the spices on top and drizzle the olive oil. Rub the fries with your fingers to coat well. Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes, depending on how thick you cut the fries.
  • Once the fries are brown/ golden in color, tender and form a crispy outer layer, remove from the oven. Let is rest for a couple of minutes then serve with your favorite dish.

Notes

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Make sure to peel the jicama, the skin isn't edible.
  • Be sure to slice the jicama into to roughly even sizes, so they will cook at the same rate.
  • It's best to quickly boil the jicama fry slices first, this helps with cooking time.
  • After boiling the fries make sure you drain, and even pat dry with a paper towel - if needed - to remove excess water.
  • Spread the fry slices out on a single layer when baking, to allow them to cook evenly and crisp up!
  • Feel free to have fun with different seasoning! You could go for red pepper flakes for a pop of heat, or herby with some Italian seasoning.
