Basil Jicama Fries

I posted the recipe for these Jicama Fries on my Instagram a few weeks ago.  Since this is such a simple recipe, I hesitated putting it on my blog.  But that’s what my blog is about – simple, healthy, low sugar, delicious recipes that are easy to make.  So here it is: Basil Jicama Fries.

Basil Jicama Fries


  • 1 box Trader Joe’s pre-cut Jicama Sticks (or 1 jicama)
  • dried basil
  • garlic powder
  • pink salt
  • ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Remove jicama sticks from box and slice in half (so they’re thinner).
  3. Lay out on lined baking sheet and sprinkle with remaining ingredients (quantity varies by taste preference).
  4. Place fries in oven (bottom rack) and bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve.


The amount of seasoning you add is really up to you!  Jicama doesn’t have much flavor in my opinion, so go all out with the dried basil 😉


For this particular meal, I had kale massaged in olive oil, jicama fries, 2 pasture raised eggs and a few raw pecans.


Have you ever tried roasting jicama?  What’s your favorite way to eat it?
