Seasoned Jicama Hash with Onions and Bell Pepper – Paleo, Gluten-Free, Vegan

Seasoned Jicama Hash with Onions and Bell Pepper

I think I may have found a new love. Don’t tell my other love quinoa but jicama is quickly making it’s way into my regular rotation. I recently made jicama fries which totally satisfy my french fry craving.

Now I have a delicious healthy hash brown recipe. If you aren’t vegan, you can top this hash with an egg for a little protein. I love this hash all by itself, it’s got so much flavor.

I have to give credit to this awesome seasoning recipe I found at www.healthfulpursuit.comI used their recipe as a great base for my own seasoning mixture. I made up a batch and kept it in a small mason jar to use for future recipes. I use this same exact seasoning mixture for this hash and my seasoned jicama fries. If you use lots of seasoning, double the recipe like I did.

SEASONING RECIPE:
2 Tablespoon paprika
1 Tablespoon dried oregano leaves
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon dried ground sage
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Pinch cayenne pepper
Combine seasoning ingredients in a jar with a lid and give it a good shake to mix everything up. Keep any leftover mixture for a future recipe.

Calories per 100g: Jicama has 38, Potato has 77

Carbs: Jicama has 9 compared to potatoes 17

Fiber: Jicama has 4.9 compared to potatoes 2.2

It’s a great low carb, low calorie alternative to potatoes. It also has vitamin C and potassium so jicama gets a thumbs up in my book. While jicama doesn’t get mushy like potatoes when cooked, I don’t mind the firmness at all.
