July 19, 2016
Boil, bake, and fry your way to these delicious low carb french fries!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Cook: 20 mins
- Yields: 2 Servings
1Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
2Peel Jicama and slice into thin, long rectangles (the shape of french fries)
3Fill a pot with water and season with black pepper and sea salt, and bring to a boil
4Submerge all jicama pieces in the water and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes (until Jicama is pretty soft and not crunchy)
5Drain in a colander and place on a baking sheet evenly spread out
6Season evenly across the top with cumin, black pepper, sea salt, and cayenne to taste (Note: more cumin and cayenne will make for spicier fries!) If you want, you can flip the fries over and season on the other side, but we noticed they were delicious only seasoning one side!
7Place baking sheet into the oven for 7 minutes
8While the fries are baking, take out a pan to fry them in (we used our wok) and heat up 6-8 tablespoons of pork lard
9Remove the fries from the oven and place into the heated oil
10Fry until golden brown
11Serve with your favorite toppings (we used bacon, egg, cheese, and sour cream) and enjoy!
