Description

Low-carb, gut-friendly baked jicama fries with turmeric and black pepper. Serve with guacamole for a delicious summer side. Paleo, vegan and keto-friendly.


Ingredients

  • 1 medium jicama, peeled and cut into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick (about 45 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 to 400°F.
  2. Boil a pot of water on stovetop. Once water is boiling add your jicama slices to the pot and boil for 8-10 minutes. Drain the water and pat the fries dry before coating them with the spices and baking.
  3. Once jicama slices are dry add them to a large bowl, add oil, turmeric, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Remove from oven and serve with guacamole for dipping.
