Jicama Fries

I love good fries!  I think most people like good fries.  

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.
