Jicama may be eaten raw or cooked, for example to replace potato fries as in this recipe. If you cannot find it, it may be replaced by turnip.

Preparation : 10 min Cooking : 30 min
120 calories/serving


1 jicama 700 g
2 tbsp lemonjuice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 3/4 tsp ground cumin 4 g
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper 2 g
4 tsp dried oregano 3 g
1 tsp salt [optional] 4 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
parchment paper, for the sheet


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel the jicama, then cut it into 1x8 cm pieces. It is important to cut it into pieces of similar size so that they will all cook evenly and be done at the same time. Place the pieces in a microwave-safe bowl with water. Microwave for 6 min. Alternatively, you can pour boiling hot water over the pieces and let set for 10 min. Drain.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the oil, lemon juice, spices, oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the jicama pieces and coat them well with the mixture. Transfer them to the prepared baking sheet. Don't crowd the pieces on the sheet or they will steam and not turn golden-brown.
  4. Bake in the middle of the oven for 25-30 min, or until they begin to turn golden brown, tossing halfway through.
  5. Serve with your choice of mayo, ketchup, salsa or dip.
