I made Jicama Fries recently in the air fryer. They definitely aren't potato fries but I thought they were great - I have made them three times now. Chris ate them too - and enjoyed them. The first time I bought the pre-cut jicama. This isn't the most economical route so the 2nd time, we purchased a jicama and Chris cut it for me. I "googled" how to cut a jicama. We enjoyed some that night but this was a huge jicama so the other is stored in my fridge. I think I am having more jicama fries tonight!
I tried different seasonings all three times. The first time I followed .... Awe Filled Homemaker and used salt, pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder. That is what is in the picture. They were yummy but almost a little too spicy for me. The 2nd time, I used my Meat & Potatoes seasoning and some sea salt from Primal Palate. These were also great. The 3rd time, I used my Super Gyro seasoning and some sea salt... from Primal Palate and then sprinkled in some grated Parmesan cheese the last 2/3 minutes. All great! I dipped in ranch! Also, I love my Primal Palate seasonings - you should totally check them out.
And a side note, we are enjoying our air fryer. I think I would have used it a ton when the girls were still living at home. I have a teacher whose boys use it daily. Just a thought....
Air Fryer Jicama Fries (adapted from Awe Filled Homemaker)
1 medium sized jicama, cut into matchsticks
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
The jicama tends to pretty wet so lay the jicama on a paper towel and pat dry. Put match stick like jicama in a large bowl and toss with olive and seasonings. Toss until well coated.
Air Fry for 15 minutes at 400, shaking about every 4 minutes, to ensure even frying. Serve hot with your favorite condiment.
