Some Like it Hot (Janice Hagan)

Do you ever get stuck in a rut?  Same dinner schedule week after week?  We had the great fortune of being handed a new vegetable, called jicama, in our food co-op basket this week.  And then, we were mailed a package of organic soup to sample.  It was like fate was telling us to try something new!
  • 1 jicama, peeled and cut into 1/4" thick fries
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
  • Put the jicama strips in a microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and microwave for 15 minutes, stopping once to stir.
  • In a large bowl, toss the jicama fries with the juice and the spices. Arrange on foil-lined pan, and bake 45 minutes, until browned. Serve immediately.
The jicama fries went really well with our chicken tortilla soup!
