Jicama Fries


Paleo Catwon Jicama Fries

It’s easy to get tired of sweet pots after eating Paleo for a while. If you’re not tired of them yet, it’s a good idea to mix things up a bit so you don’t get to that dark place.

Jicama scared me at first. I didn’t know what it was. I’m not gonna lie. I still don’t know what it is. It looks like a huge brown turnip or an obese yam. Or a large brown rock. #iono

It also has a weird texture. And no taste. It’s pretty damn weird ok? I’ve seen a ton of baked jicama recipes and I thought I’d try one for myself.


  • 1 rock, I mean, jicama
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee/coconut oil
  • smoked paprika
  • cumin
  • black pepper
  • sea salt


  • preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • cut jicama ends/tips off
  • peel jicama (if you can. It was way too hard for me to peel with a peeler so I ended up shaving mine with a knife)
  • slice jicama into desired fry thickness (I would go thinner to let them crisp up easier)
  • melt 1-2 tbsp ghee/coconut oil
  • place sliced jicama in bowl & coat fries with melted ghee/coconut oil
  • sprinkle smoked paprika, cumin, black pepper & sea salt
  • mix
  • place jicama slices onto a baking sheet
  • bake for 40-45 min
  • flip half way through

I took my babe to an off leash dog park yesterday. Dogs love this park because they can run around freely & even jump into the water. Hurls is totally a sweetheart, to humans. However, he isn’t too fond of other dogs. I wish he’d get along with them because he’s pretty much an indoor dog and he’s so lazy that I struggle to find things for him to do to keep him active. Ya know, I’m tryna keep his slim body healthy..

Hurlwon & Catwon

I was with pretty much with the most popular dog in the dog park. He was turning heads left and right with his fashion-forward baseball cap (that was hanging onto dear life bc he’s too fat)

Hurlwon & Catwon

The first 20 minutes were really fun and he was struttin’ his stuff. Buttttttttttttt, since my babe is so lazy, he quickly gave up on life and it took 2 hours to walk a 1 mile roundtrip.

    • They are actually pretty crispy on the inside still. I would recommend cutting thin slices of jicama before baking as it takes a while for the jicama to cook down.
