Jicama Fries

What the heck is Jicama?? I was extremely leery when I first saw a post on Jicama fries. I love fries, but they’re usually filled with nasties. So while exploring the many options online for substitutes, I ran across the delicious wonder that is Jicama.

Jicama is a root that has many health benefits. It is an excellent source antioxidants and fiber. It contains important vitamins and minerals, such as thiamine, magnesium, and iron. It’s extremely versatile and can be eaten both raw and cooked. The texture is similar to a turnip, but the taste is somewhat like an apple. It is sweet, but also savory. You can add it to salads, soup, bake it, etc.

When looking for a good Jicama, I always try to go with the smallest ones I can find. The skin is not as thick and easier to peel the smaller they are. So head to your local grocery store and pick up some. Try adding some Jicama as a side for your next meal and see how amazing it is!
