To a medium preheated skillet, place diced jicama and oil of choice .Saute jicama for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to brown, on medium heat.
Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover skillet (this will allow inside of each piece to soften). Allow jicama to soften for about 10-12 minutes over medium heat, then transfer to a large bowl.
Add a tsp of oil to skillet and toss in onions. Saute for 4-5 minutes (until onions were translucent), stirring occasionally, then add all spices. Add jicama back to skillet with onions.Stir to mix and incorporate, and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
Add the jicama back to the skillet, stirring occasionally, until browned to preference. Top with parsley and serve.
