|Jicama Fries -- Copyright 2012 by Michelle Loy, MPH, MS, RD, CSSD - Go Wellness|
1/2 small-medium jicama, cut into about 1/4-in thick sticks about 3-4-inches long -- For help on cutting up the jicama, I suggest this tutorial.
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and turmeric, to taste (I don't measure here but probably use about 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp of the other seasonings/spices.)
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Combine olive oil and spices in a medium bowl. Toss jicama sticks into the bowl to coat evenly.
2. Place jicama sticks onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or on a wire rack (I use a wire rack for even heating without having to flip them mid-way through baking.) Make sure that the sticks have enough space around them so that they don't touch one another.
3. If baking directly on baking sheet lined with parchment paper, bake for 15 minutes. Then flip the fries over and bake for another 10 minutes, or until golden brown in color. If baking on a wire rack, then you can just bake continuously for 25 minutes, or until golden brown in color. Remove from oven and enjoy!
