Baked Jicama Fries

Baked Jicama Fries

img_6236Misfits Market strikes again… yet another vegetable I’ve never prepared.  This was an interesting one-I had to Google pictures of root vegetables to figure out what it even was.  Now, I know that a jicama makes a delicious side dish!

I found this recipe from Spend with Pennies.  I paired this recipe with Lemon-Garlic Aioli and it was amazing as a side dish!


  • 2 large jicama
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Peel jicama and cut into ‘fries’. Boil 10-12 minutes.
  3. Drain and dab dry. Toss with remaining ingredients.
  4. Place on a parchment lined pan and bake 20 minutes.
  5. Flip and bake an additional 20 minutes or until golden
  6. Serve warm with ranch or aioli.
