“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.”

Directions

  1. Spray a microwave-safe plate with cooking spray. Arrange jicama pieces on plate.
  2. Cook in the microwave on high until small brown stripes begin to form on the fries, 9 to 11 minutes. Check on the fries every few minutes to avoid burning. Remove plate from microwave with an oven mitt because plate will be hot.

Thank you for sharing the recipe, I thought they were really good. I had never tried Jicama, so I made 3 recipes that I found, and this was my favorite. I added some pam spray and sea salt at the end and they were great.

Had a ton of jicama left over and when I found this recipe, I thought, "What do I have to lose?" I followed the recipe exactly, microwaved it 4 minutes to start, then checked at 2 minute intervals. I squirted a little cooking spray on the "fries" after they were done, and lightly salted them. The fish I served them with had a nice tomato-ey sauce, and this really made the "fries" yummy. So maybe ketchup would not be amiss. I will definitely make again when I have jicama left over.
