  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped, for topping

For The Chimichurri Sauce: (Optional)

  • 1/3 cup fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 red onion

Instructions

For the Jicama Fries

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place the jicama in a microwave-safe bowl with water. Microwave for 6 minutes. Alternatively, you can pour boiling hot water over the fries in a large mixing bowl and let set for 10 minutes. Drain.

  3. Place drained jicama on baking sheet and add remaining ingredients. Toss to coat well.

  4. Spread the jicama fries out on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until they begin to turn golden brown, tossing halfway through.

For the Chimichurri Sauce:

  1. Combine the parsley, cilantro, red onion, jalapeno, lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin, and coriander seeds in a blender.

  2. Pulse until the mixture is chopped.
  3. Add the olive oil and puree until consistency is smooth, about 1 minute.
