Jicama Fries


This is one of my favorite potato swaps. I’ve been a fan of fresh jicama in salads or dipped in guacamole or tuna for a while. But once I tried to see if it would work well as fries, jicama became a staple veggie in my weekly shopping.   Jicama is a very unique starchy veggie. It’s low on the glycemic index but high in a number of vital nutrients. It’s also rich in inulin, a unique soluble fiber, which has been shown to help promote healthy gut flora.


1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line two metal baking sheets with Gefen Parchment Paper.
2. Toss fries with oil and spices. For spicy fries, add the paprika and cayenne pepper.
3. Lay on prepared baking sheets and bake for 25-30 minutes, then turn off the oven and leave fries inside for another 20 minutes to dehydrate further. Serve warm or at room temperature.
