Completely over sweet potato fries right now, I miss good old white potato fries, but I can cook up some Baked Jicama Fries.
Of course, nothing’s stopping me from hopping in the car and heading over to the nearest burger joint and ordering myself a large fry and shake. There is that minor detail that it would make me feel disgusting minutes after inhaling, so I guess I’ll pass.
Anyway, my craving for something salty had me scouring the kitchen. Then I saw it, a lonely jicama off in the corner. It was time to make some magic happen!
As you’ll see, I don’t really measure much when it comes to this recipe. You might have a huge jicama and not like lots of salt, so measurements are all based on taste. Be sure to make some clean ketchup to dip these suckers in.
- Jicama (approx. 1lb)
- 1/2 c. Unrefined coconut oil (or olive oil)
- Old Bay Seasoning (to taste)
- Sea Salt (to taste)
- Pre-heat oven to 400F and line baking sheet with foil
- Slice jicama into preferred shape (I used my handy dandy fry slicer)
- Rinse the jicama and gently pat dry (they can remain damp…no biggy) and place into medium-large glass bowl
- Evenly cover the jicama with the melted oil
- Dump the jicama onto the sheet and spread out
- Sprinkle with seasonings
- Place sheet into oven
- Bake for approx. 40 min (or until it reaches your desired texture) moving around occasionally so they brown evenly
