Golden Baked Jicama Fries

Print Recipe
By Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium jicama, peeled and cut into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick (about 4-5 cups)
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • homemade guacamole, for serving (store-bought works too)

Instructions

1

Preheat oven or air fryer to 400°F.

2

Place jicama slices into a large bowl, add oil, turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.

3

Spread the fries onto a baking stone or a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper making sure the fries aren’t crowded. They need space or else they will start to steam and get soft rather than crispy.

4

Bake for 30 minutes, take them out of the oven and flip, then bake for another 20-30 minutes or until fries are a little brown and have reached the desired texture.

5

Remove from oven and serve with guacamole for dipping.

6

* These jicama fries might be a tad on the crunchy side given jicama’s natural texture. If you want them with less crunch you can boil the jicama slices for 8-10 minutes, drain the water and pat the fries dry before coating them with the spices and baking.
