Keto Fries

keto fries

Are you missing french fries? Just because you choose to live a low-carb lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to give up on your favorite dishes.

These keto fries really are the closest thing you will get to an actual french fry, but without all the carbs.

Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside thanks to jicama!

For those of you who don’t know what Jicama is, it is often referred to as a Mexican potato or Mexican turnip.

It’s a root vegetable, and on the outside looks similar to a potato, but on the inside has a similar texture to an apple or pear.

It’s also low in carbs and high in fiber!

 

Yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES | cook time: 55 MINUTES
total time: 1 HOUR 5 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

2 medium size jicama
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Olive oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Microwave the unpeeled jicama for 3 minutes. This will make peeling and slicing a lot easier.
  2. Peel and slice jicama into 1/2 inch slices so they look similar to french fries. In a large saucepan, bring water to boil and place sliced jicama in the boiling water for 20 minutes.
  3. Drain jicama and pat dry to remove any water. In a large bowl, add boiled jicama. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of olive oil and seasonings over the jicama, then toss to coat the jicama evenly.
  4. Spread jicama out on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes flipping halfway through at the 15-minute mark. Turn on broil and continue for 1-2 minutes to get the edges crispy.
  5. Serve and enjoy with your favorite keto condiments.
