Keto Jicama Fries

If you have never had jicama before, you are in for a treat! These fries are so much like the real thing that even picky kids will eat them. I love the garlic Parmesan sauce here, but they are also great served alongside a juicy burger with keto ketchup.

Ingredients

Fries

Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • cup grated parmesan cheese plus more for garnish if desired
  • Parsley and Maldon sea salt for garnish

Instructions

  • Peel the jicama and cut into fries using a sharp knife or the blade of your food processor. (You want them about ¼" thick)
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the jicama and cook for about 15 minutes. Drain and dry on paper towels. Place in a bowl and toss with the oil.

Air Fryer

  • Preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees. Arrange the fries in a single layer, cooking in batches if necessary. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes until the jicama, is tender and golden brown, flipping halfway through.

Baked

  • Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cook for 30 minutes. Flip and cook another 10 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Sauce

  • Meanwhile, melt the butter over medium-high heat in a small skillet or saucepan. Add the garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook for about a minute. Stir in parmesan.
  • Toss the fries with the garlic butter. Top with additional parmesan cheese if desired, and sprinkle with parsley and Maldon sea salt.
