Baked Jicama and Carrots...

A few weeks ago I received a jicama in my Bountiful Basket. I was stumped as what to do with it. A quick Google search solved that problem. I found tons of recipes for jicama, so I decided to give it a try. Jicama is very similar to potatoes, so it can be used in place of them in most recipes. Jicama Fries, Jicama bakes, etc.

I decided to go with a roasted veggies, since it was almost lunch time. I was super hungry and wanting a veggie fix. I washed and peeled my jicama, along with my carrots. I chopped them into chunks and placed them on a baking sheet. I also chopped my onion. Thankfully Keagan was there to help me out with the onion. Onions make me cry like crazy, so usually the boy helps me out.

This was a quick and easy meal to throw together. I let it bake for 40 minutes, while we finished up school, and then lunch was ready. I served it with a slice of zucchini bread for me and hot dogs for the kiddos. Super easy and yummy!

Baked Jicama and Carrots

1 large jicama, washed and peeled
4 carrots, washed
1 purple onion


Chop your jicama and carrots into 1/2 inch chunks. Next chop your onion into chunks as well. Place veggies on a greased baking sheet (I used olive oil). Generously sprinkle your veggies with seasoning salt, rosemary, and celery seed. Bake at 400' for 35-45 minutes.


Enjoy!

  4. In Mexico we eat jicama as a fruit with lime, salt, and chile, similar to how we will eat mango, watermelon, pineapple, and cucumber. You probably have seen vendors sell fruit cups/bags with all of these fruits. Just peel it, cut it up, and season with lime, salt, and/or chile to taste. Give it a try! It's delicious!
