Spiralizer Recipe #2: Curly Fries

IMG_20160604_173433

The title of this post is somewhat misleading.  I don’t know that this is technically a recipe, but we will proceed as such!  I have been serving a lot of organic potatoes lately to my family, in many different forms.  My children informed me the other night that they were tired of potatoes and they refused to eat anymore.  Well, I considered that a challenge since I had just bought another bag of potatoes that I didn’t want to go to waste!!!

There they were, sitting in the pantry, day after day being ignored because of the potato strike of my children.  I waited and waited, and then this evening I had a brainstorm.  I wanted to do something else with my Spiralizer after the zucchini, but I was definitely not in any mood to cook.  And then it hit me – curly fries!  I could use up my potatoes and present a fun dish without much effort at all!  It really worked out perfectly.  The kids had been at an all day swim meet, so they came home famished (despite stopping for a burrito on the way home!). Enter curly fries……needless to say they devoured them, and there wasn’t one mention of potatoes!

Here is what I did:

Wash 6-8 organic potatoes, leaving skins on.  Preheat oven to 425 F.  Put potatoes through the spiralizer using the large spiral blade.  Line baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil spray.  Load on the fries and cover with a healthy dose of olive oil, sea salt and nutritional yeast (Old Bay would be delicious also OR some diced onions mixed in!!!).  Bake until cooked throughout and crispy, and devour with dipping sauce of your choice!
