For 4 people ()
- 1 large rutabaga or jicama
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
- garlic powder to taste
- 1 dash(es) paprika (optional
Oven Baked Rutabaga or Jicama Fries Directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Peel waxy skin off rutabaga or jicama with a paring knife or peeler
Cut large into quarters (carefully), then into "french fry strips"
Place in large bowl and toss with oil, sea salt and pepper or seasonings of your choice
Place a flat layer of fries on cookie sheet
Cooking times may vary depending on consistency desired, typically Rutabaga will need to bake for 20-30 minutes and flip them halfway through (keep watch thin pieces which may burn). Jicama fries cook 30-45 mins.
Fries will turn brown and get tender - bake longer for crispier texture
Sprinkle with additional sea salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika (all to taste) and serve hot
*For Step 1 of the ITG Diet Plan- Rutabaga and Jicama are occasional vegetables*
