Happy New Year! I know I’m about 6 days late, but better late than never! I’m sorry I left you hanging for so long, but I really enjoyed the time with my family. Hubby took some vacation time and we had some fun, like seeing the lights at the zoo, traveling to see family, getting hands on at a museum and baking cookies. Apparently the girls have been good this year because they both got what they wanted for Christmas (a robot dinosaur for Cupcake and a glowing Rarity for Pumpkin). And we had fun ringing in the New Year with friends with a count down and balloon drop.
And now it’s back to reality and cooking dinner. And making a side dish to go with dinner. And that’s what I have for you today! Curly Sweet Potato Fries are one of my favorite side dishes, especially on burger night!
I bought a spiralizer just so I could make curly sweet potatoes!! I had one of those little handheld ones and it really only works on zucchini. You really need a little bit more umph to make curly sweet potatoes.
I’ve tried a few other recipes with spiral sweet potatoes, but this is my favorite way to eat them and it’s so easy to prepare!
Start with the straightest sweet potato you can find. Give it a good rinse and peel it. Using the small blade on your spiralizer give the sweet potato a spin.
And you end up with this beautiful mess. I really like the center spiral. It’s the cutest, springiest one!
Toss some coconut oil in a skillet and melt it over medium heat. You want enough oil in the skillet to cover the sweet potatoes once they’re in there.
Don’t overcrowd them. You just want a single layer, so you’ll have to do this in batches. Fry until golden and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Continue frying up the rest of your curly sweet potato fries and then dig in!
