Creole Jicama Hash with a Sunny Side Up Egg

Perfect Pairing:  Box shredder


I am so excited about this dish!  It will come as no surprise that since I have a big day (MY WEDDING!!!!!) coming up soon I am doing my best to eat healthy, workout, and tone up.  I am always searching for healthy recipes that are still delicious.  I have a fiancé to feed!

I love jicama but had only eaten it as a raw crudite, how it is served here.  In this breakfast (or any other meal) the jicama is shredded and cooked like a hash with onion and creole seasoning.  A simple box shredder is the perfect tool here.  No need to drag out the food processor. Just watch your fingers.


Jicama has a slightly sweet flavor which is great in this, especially if you balance it with a hefty pinch of salt.  

Top it all off with a sprinkle of green onions, sriracha, and an egg.  I like (love) a runny egg, but cook according to your preference.  


It is such a satisfying meal.  If you are familiar with the diet that uses “points” this is only 3 points!!!  You can’t beat that.  It is also paleo friendly for my paleo friends out there!  


Creole Jicama Hash with a Sunny Side Up Egg

Lindsay at Perfecting the Pairing


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded jicama (peeled first)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tsp creole seasoning (more or less to taste depending on brand)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Sriracha, optional


Preheat a nonstick skillet over high heat, add the olive oil and spray of cooking spray.  Add in the jicama and onion, arrange into a single layer with as much surface area against the pan.  Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until it starts to brown.  Add in the creole seasoning and salt, taste and adjust because all seasonings are a little different.  Cook until tender and browned all over.  Remove to a plate. 

Cook the egg in the same pan (add cooking spray if necessary) according to taste.  I like it runny.  Top the hash with the egg, green onions, and hot sauce.
