Curly Sweet Potato Fries

1 Comment

Over the past few months I have been eating a lot of sweet potatoes.  I can’t get enough of them! They are a great source of dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and they taste great! I received a Paderno Spiral Slicer as a gift and I immediately wanted to make curly sweet potato fries with them. This has quickly become a family favorite so I wanted to share the recipe with you!

These curly sweet potato fries are delicious, easy to make and are a healthy alternative to your traditional french fries.  I use the  Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer to slice my sweet potatoes.  Let me give you a few tips for using this vegetable slicer.  You always want to cut the ends off of your vegetable to make sure that the vegetable stays securely in place while you spiralize it.  There are also suction cups on the bottom to help keep your vegetable slicer in place.  Make sure you use them! It helps a lot! Lastly, there are 3 different blades that come with this particular vegetable slicer.  The shredder blade (for long spaghetti like spiral strands), the chipper blade ( for long thicker spiral strands) and the flat blade (for long ribbon like strands).  I use the chipper blade to make my curly fries.

Curly Sweet Potato Fries

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 4 Tbsp of olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Rinse your sweet potatoes and peel if desired (I leave the skin on).  Slice off both ends of the  sweet potatoes.  Spiralize the potato according to your slicers instructions. If you are using the Paderno Vegetable slicer you will need to place the sweet potato on the prongs and crank he handle while pushing the base towards the blade.  Use a bowl to collect the curly potato strings as you slice them.  When you have finished slicing the potatoes, add the olive oil and salt.  Toss to coat all of the potato strings.  Place them on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until crispy.  I flip them halfway through baking to prevent them from burning.  Enjoy!
