Category: Side Dishes  


1 jicama (approx 1 pound), peeled and cut into ¼ inch thick fries
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of Celtic (or Himalayan) sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Place jicama fries on a steamer and steam for about 20-25 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a cooling rack on a cookie sheet.
In a large bowl, toss the jicama fries with the olive oil and the spices.
Arrange on the cooling rack and bake for 45 minutes until browned, turning halfway through.
To make it crispier, broil for the remaining 5 minutes.
Serve immediately.
