Thank you to the Ruled Me blog for this one because it is most definitely in my top 5 of keto recipes made thus far! It was incredibly easy to make, but most importantly tastes freaking delicious! It totally reminded me of the bread my dad brings to Christmas morning. In fact, I just realized that next time I am going to toast it just like he does! The walnut crust adds a really nice crunch!

Jicama Fries

Image
Did they taste exactly like fries? No! Did these jicama fries do the trick? Yes! For me, consistency is huge and these jicama fries totally mimicked what fries would taste like. Jicama is a bit higher in carbs than radish or turnip. So if you are on a strict keto diet, you may want to use those root vegetables instead but if you are lazy keto/low carb like I am, they fit perfectly into my plan! 
Ingredients
2 cups jicama sliced (about 1 small) 2 tablespoons avocado oil 3/4 teaspoon sea salt divided 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Instructions
1. Peel jicama and slice into french fry pieces. 2. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sea salt into a medium pot of water. Bring to a boil. 3. Boil jicama fries in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain in colander. 4. Place drained jicama pieces into a large mixing bowl. Coat with avocado oil, then sprinkle on 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, garlic powder, cumin, and smoked paprika. Blend in spices. 5. Spread fries onto oiled baking pan. Bake …

Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.In a food processor combine the egg yolks, 1/3 of the beaten egg whites, melted butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt (Adding 6 drops of liquid stevia to the batter can help reduce the mild egg taste).
