For All Stages of the ITG Diet Plan



For 4 people ()


  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 large rutabaga or jicama
  • 4 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 dash(es) paprika (optional)

Oven Baked Rutabaga or Jicama Fries Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Peel waxy skin off rutabaga or jicama with a paring knife or peeler
  3. Cut large into quarters (carefully), then into "french fry strips"
  4. Place in large bowl and toss with oil, sea salt and pepper or seasonings of your choice
  5. Place a flat layer of fries on cookie sheet
  6. Cooking times may vary depending on consistency desired, typically Rutabaga will need to bake for 20-30 minutes and flip them halfway through (keep watch thin pieces which may burn). Jicama fries cook 30-45 mins.
  7. Fries will turn brown and get tender - bake longer for crispier texture
  8. Sprinkle with additional sea salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika (all to taste) and serve hot
  9. *For Step 1 of the ITG Diet Plan- Rutabaga and Jicama are occasional vegetables*
