Jicama Zebra Fries

Rated as 4.11 out of 5 Stars

"Ever wonder what to do when you have too much jicama? Here's a quick guide to making a quick snack. Best served with barbeque sauce. The stripes on the fries are caused by the moisture escaping the jicama and creating fissures where the starch from the jicama collects and browns."

  1. Spray a microwave-safe plate with cooking spray. Arrange jicama pieces on plate.

This took closer to 15 min and never got nice "zebra" stripes. It was chewy and the kids hated it. My husband and I thought it was just ok. I'm gonna try roasting them in the oven next time

My first experience with Jicama and it was awesome. I added a little sea salt.
