- 2 ½ cups filtered water
- 1 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt, divided
- 15 oz raw jicama (medium size jicama)
- 1 tbsp + 2 tsp avocado oil
- ½ tsp ground turmeric
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ⅛ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp crushed dried rosemary
- 2 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a vegetable peeler, peel skin from jicama. Slice peeled jicama into fries.
To a medium pot over high heat, add water and ½ tsp salt and bring to a boil. Add sliced jicama, cover pot, and boil for 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat and drain water.
Transfer jicama to a large mixing bowl, drizzle with avocado oil and add remaining 1 tsp salt, turmeric, garlic powder, paprika, crushed dried rosemary and onion powder. Toss using tongs until jicama is fully coated in oil and spices.
Transfer seasoned jicama onto the prepared baking sheet in single layer. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before garnishing with chopped fresh parsley.
Serve with guacamole or homemade vegan ranch Dressing.
