Air Fryer Jacked Up Jicama FriesPrint Recipe
- 550 g jicama
- 1/4 cup Paleo Powder Cassava + AIP Breadless Breading Mix
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp Oceans Halo Seaweed salt
- 1 tbsp Avocado Oil
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cut the top and bottom off the jicama and use a pairing knife to cut away the brown skin. Cut in half and then proceed to chop each half into long fry pieces about the size and length of your index finger.
Boil Jicama for 15-20, until soft and drain. Let them cool down for 15 minutes while you beat the egg and measure out the Breading Mix.
In a large bowl add the jicama, toss with the beaten egg and then add the Breading mix and seaweed salt to the fries. Top with 1 tbsp of avocado oil and get int there with both hands to evenly coat.
Dump the entire bowl of fries into the air fryer basket and when ready to eat set the air fryer to 390 F. When its ready, add the fries and air fry for 15 minutes. Serve with home made lemon yogurt sauce or low sugar ketchup.
You can boil and bread the fries a few hours before you serve them if your doing this for a party. Just let them come to room temp before setting the air fryer to go. If you dont have an air fryer, then add 1 tbsp of oil when coating and bake on a non stick sheet and at 375 for 30-45 minutes.
#thefries. I really thought an air fryer was all hype. Mostly because I thought you bought pre-packaged fries or chicken tenders or whatever and threw them in. It never even occurred to me that this could be used to make my own fries of any sort. Coming soon to toasty, beet fries, avocado fries, zucchini fries, who knows, we are living in perilous and confusing times so might as well have it served with some fun. Late one night, still in pandemic era, hubby and I were a few Kentucky bourbons in and saw an infomercial for the Ninja Foodie Grill. Since we cant grill outdoors because we rent, the next day the scarce ( and scary) trip to Walmart was complete and I had my grill and air fryer- the thing also bakes but lets take it slowly shall we?
So back to the important shit. My fries. I love love fries. Potatoes are great too but sometimes you just want to get in there and stuff your face with them so enter my favorite low calorie and carb option. Filling up without filling out right? Jicama is a root vegetable that is full of pre biotic fiber which is good for your gut and it has a ton of Vitamin C and even folate. It does need to be peeled, cut and boiled before you can even think about fries but that only takes about 20 minutes. Once coated in an egg and then with this amazing cassava flour breading by Paleo Powder Foods, it gets crisped up and is ready to serve in only 15 minutes. Crunchy and flavorful on the outside and tender on the inside, it dips into ketchup just like potatoes do.
