Sweet and Hot Roasted Jícama

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Jícama is more prized for its fresh crunch than its mild flavor. Roasted, it still has crunch but is sweeter, which makes a toss with hot sauce welcome. It’s good with barbecued ribs or fried fish, and it’s outstanding in vegetable soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium jícama (1-3/4 lb.), peeled and cut into medium dice (about 5 cups)
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1-1/2 tsp. hot sauce, such as Crystal; more to taste
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lime zest

Preparation

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 425°F.
  • On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the jícama with 2Tbs. of the oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper, and arrange in a single layer. Cover tightly with foil and roast, 25 minutes. Remove the foil and continue roasting, tossing frequently, until the jícama begins to brown on the bottom and is crisp-tender, about 30 minutes more.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the jícama, the remaining 1 Tbs. oil, the onion, parsley, hot sauce, lime zest, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Toss to coat and serve.

    I usually use jicama raw, It never occurred to me to roast it! I just love this, so tasty. It's such a great way to use leftover jicama.

    So simple, fabulous combo!

    This is delicious! The combo of lime zest and red onion makes it so addictive! I didn't have the recommended hot sauce so I used sriracha. Be sure to salt to taste as needed after combining all ingredients.
