Healthy Jicama Fries

August 15, 2016


Holy jicama [hick-ah-mah]!  I'm completely in love with this root vegetable and you will be too once you see how easy it is to make healthy french fries with it!


Jicama is a root vegetable similar in color to a parsnip with a brown outer skin.  You can eat it raw or cooked and it has crisp and crunchy texture.   Great addition to a raw veggie platter with dips OR check this recipe out:


Jicama Fries (serves 2)



  • 1 medium sized jicama

  • 1/2 lime

  • 1-2 Tablespoons EVOO

  • Salt and pepper



  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Trim ends off jicama and peel, then cut into about 1/2" thick fries (or whatever size you prefer!).  Place in a bowl.

  3. Drizzle jicama with EVOO.

  4. Zest lime over jicama and season with salt and pepper, squeeze lime juice over jicama.

  5. Toss to combine.

  6. Spread jicama out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy.

Get creative with your seasonings!  I really enjoyed this version from Green Chef, but you can add any flavors you like.  The baking process is the same. 


Enjoy as a snack or as a side with dinner!  They pair amazingly with a burger (I had some with a black bean burger the other night, pictured above - AMAZING!).  They also taste great dipped in guacamole :)


Peace out.
