Baked Chipotle Jicama Fries

IMG_7924Nom, nom, nom…jicama is a great addition to any meal. Whether it’s eaten raw or baked, this is a tasty treat for all to enjoy!

If you are unfamiliar with this root vegetable, it has a crisp inside texture with a sweet & starchy flavor. Some compare it to an apple & raw green bean (weird, I know). Jicama is full of carbs, but the good kind so please do not be frightened! The carbs are in dietary form (see, the good ones) & it is composed of almost 90% water & numerous vitamins/minerals

Jicama can totally be eaten raw, just slice it up & serve with a dip or even a twist of lime juice. However, if you decide to bake away, then try it my way – chipotle fries, served with my Nantucket love lobster roll – clearly I am biased for the roll I made the other day. 😉

Anywho, lets get to the fries…

  1. Preheat oven to 400degrees & line baking pan with parchment paper/baking sheet
  2. In a large bowl combine 1/2T EVOO, juice from half a lime & 1/4t each of: onion powder, chipotle powder & salt
  3. Slice 1 jicama into 1/2inch pieces & add to bowl – toss to coat
  4. In a single layer place jicama on prepared baking sheet
  5. Bake for 15minutes, toss, then bake for another 15minutes

Serve right out of the oven & include a wedge of lime, so you can cool the spice down!
