Jicama Poutine Recipe {Keto friendly/Low Carb}

This is not the lowest carb dish but if you are trying to scratch that fries with gravy and cheese itch these did a pretty good job. The texture of jicama is light with a natural crunch. I will be up front and honest if your looking for that fluffy creamy potato texture this isn’t it but if your looking for those rich familiar flavors smothered in a delicious gravy topped with cheese curds then please continue on.

I've heard of Poutine recipes in the past but if you're unfamiliar with it, basically the traditional dish is made with home fries, cheese curds and then a brown gravy over the top.

Make it!

With the Keto diet you can have your fats (cheese) and lots of veggies, but carbs are off the list. So this recipe is a  nice way to curb cravings for french fries at the beginning.

This recipe is made in an Air Fryer, which is super helpful if you're going to be serving veggies.  It can cut down on cooking time, and isn't as heavy (or as messy) as frying on the stove top.  If you're starting out on a clean eating, low carb or Keto diet and are worried about the time spent in the kitchen to prepare ingredients, I would suggest looking into an Air Fryer or Instant Pot.  Both can cut down on cooking times, and there are so many recipes out there now that are adapted to one or both appliances. 🙂

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes



  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon Primal palate French Onion seasoning

  1. In a medium saucepan
  2. Heat beef stock, French onion seasoning, bone broth and Worcestershire to a simmer.
  3. Whisk in xanthan gum and then remove from heat.
  4. Finally whisk in butter one tablespoon at a time until completely melted.


  1. Rinse off jicama and pat dry before cutting.
  2. Cut 1 large jicama into ¼ inch fries (I removed most of the skin from the jicama but if you leave some on I don’t think it’s a big deal and I didn’t notice any difference in flavor.
  3. Season fries with salt and garlic pepper
  4. (I used a sriracha sea salt that is amazing)

  6. Place fries in air fryer basket and cook for 20 minutes at 330 degrees F (give the basket a shake every 10 minutes for even cooking)
  7. Cool fries on a tray lined with parchment paper for at least 30 minutes until room temperature.
  8. Place fries back in basket and cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees F until fries become golden.
  9. Place fries in a mini cast iron skillet and ladle gravy on then place cheese curds on top. 


Note: traditionally curds are not melted but nothing about this dish is traditional and I like to just lightly soften the curds in the oven on broil for about 3-4 minutes, this step is completely optional
