Raw chili cheese fries? Yes, please. Jicama fries tossed in spices and smothered with cashew tomato cheese and raw vegan taco meat made from veggies, seeds, and spices. For this recipe, the jicama is marinated and dehydrated with chili powder, smoked paprika, chipotle, turmeric, nutritional yeast, and sea salt — but any spices, like curry spice, will do. Sprinkle with plenty of fresh herbs and watch it disappear.
