Guilt-free French Fries

Crispy and sweet - Jicama makes fabulous fries!

Guilt-free French Fries
With BBQ season quickly approaching, I wanted to share one of my favorite side dishes to accompany all your grilled eats—guilt-free French fries. While you may have experimented with sweet potato fries as a healthier alternative to your typical French fries, you probably haven’t tried jicama fries. Not only do these taste amazing thanks to jicama’s crisp texture and sweet flavor, they have only a fraction of the calories and carbohydrates of traditional French fries. Give ‘em a try! Enjoy!



1 large jicama, peeled
2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
¼ teaspoon paprika
Ground black pepper, to taste


Slice peeled jicama into thin matchstick shaped fries.
Place jicama slices, oil and seasoning in a bowl.
Toss well to combine.
Evenly spread the fries on a lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Turn the oven on broil for a few final minutes. Remove from oven when fries are golden brown and crisp on the top.
*Experiment with different seasonings to change the flavor of the fries!
