Keto Jicama French Fries

Welcome to keto meals and recipes dot com.
Today’s recipe is introducing how to
make keto jicama french fries.
The macronutrient ratio is 1.8 to 1 with
10.5 grams of total carbs per 100 gram
serving of jicama fries. This may seem a
bit unusual for our typical low
carbohydrate recipe but the
carbohydrates from the jicama are almost
50% insoluble fiber, which we included in
the total carb count. Since these fries
are baked and not deep-fried, preheat the
oven to 220 degrees Celsius or 430
degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking
sheet with parchment. Since the skin must
not be eaten, it is very important to
peel off the skin completely. I find that
using a sharp knife works much better
than using a potato peeler. Once you have
peeled the bulb cut it into half and
place the flat side down then cut wedges
that are the thickness you want your
fries to be. Take each wedge and cut it
into individual french fry size. In this
version I’m making the regular square
cut but you can also cut the jicama into
wedges or into curly fry shapes. Before
adding the seasoning microwave the
jicama fries for 5 minutes.
This will shorten how long it will take
the fries to bake in the oven. Remove
from the microwave and let them cool to
room temperature and then place them
into a deep bowl. First add the oil and
then toss to coat the fries well. Next
add the nutritional yeast and then the
sumac and cayenne powder.
Toss with a spatula or use your hands to
ensure even distribution of the
seasoning over all the fries.
Arrange the fries in a single layer on
your parchment lined baking sheet. Place
the baking sheet into the top third
position in your oven and bake for 20 to
30 minutes or until the fries are a
golden brown. The baking time will vary
according to how thick you cut the fries
so keep an eye on them. When the fries
are done they will have a crispy crunch
in the center and have a slightly sweet
taste which is a cross between white
potatoes and sweet potatoes. Enjoy!
