Baked Jicama Fries

Have you ever had jicama or Mexican yam? It is actually from the bean family. This delicious Baked Jicama Fries is a great way to enjoy this healthy low-calorie vegetable!

Raw jicama has a sweet flavor because it contains a rich source of soluble fiber oligofructose inulin. It is a prebiotic and an inert carbohydrate that does not turn into simple sugars when broken down by digestion.

This is good news for diabetics, they can eat this sweet root without worrying about their blood sugar fluctuating.

Baked Zucchini Fries

These yummy Baked Zucchini Fries are low carb, gluten-free, vegan and pair well with my delicious avocado mayo. Zucchini spears are coated with a flavorful gluten-free breading and baked for a healthier snack or side.

I decided to revisit this recipe and I was amazed at how simple it was to make and how delicious it was. It has been a popular recipe on my website for over 4 years and it is loved by my readers. The almond flour is a great gluten-free breading alternative. I would advise you not to do any substitution, I have made this recipe so many times and it has worked perfectly with almond flour.

However, I have simplified the recipe for you, in the older versions, I made flax seed egg. I decided to add the ground flax seed with the almond flour and just dip the zucchini spears into unsweetened non-dairy milk before coating with the breading. Guess what! It worked like a charm.
