curly sweet potato fries veggie wrap

by Lori and Michelle on June 11, 2012

veggie lettuce wraps

A lot of our recipes come in mind when we are driving in the car to work. One day Lori wanted to make sweet potato fries using our spiralizer to make curly fries. We have never done it before, so we wanted to give it a shot.

lettuce sweet potato wrap

We love using our spiralizer for making raw zucchini pasta dishes. We have used it to spiralize other veggies like carrots, parsnips, cucumber, etc., but never sweet potatoes. To our surprise is was pretty easy to do…a great arm workout, haha

By having the veggies cut in different ways really makes them taste different. Do you notice that? Certain way a veggie is cut makes it taste different, even though it is the same veggie!?!

sweet potato wraps

This veggie filled sweet potato fries wrap was just want we needed -

  • quick and easy meal
  • healthy and balanced dish
  • colorful and vibrant

 

 

Some of our fries got a little burnt, but overall felt they came out pretty good!

As the fries cooled, we grabbed some romaine leaves, carrots, tahini, hemp seeds, and sauerkraut.

We made up a batch of our  3 ingredient dressing (one of our favs!)

 

Any dark leafy green would work instead of romaine like collards or swiss chard.

We find  romaine to taste perfect this time of year. It is light and refreshing! Anyone else agree?

These curly sweet potato fries wraps are the perfect summer time meal.

Twins Question: What is your favorite quick summer time meal? or snack? Have you ever made sweet potato curly fries?

Till next time,

Lori and Michelle

These looks delicious. I think I’m going to have to hunt down a spiralizer.

These look AMAZING! I’m literally borderline drooling. You knowwwwww I’d gobble those up! putting sauerkraut in there is such a great idea too!

THIS is one of my favorite summer eats – lettuce wraps! as it gets warmer, like everyone else I gravitate toward more fresh veggies and fruit in every meal… and lettuce wraps are always big with me!

these look vibrant and delicious – and very pretty! I love the idea of spiralizing for ‘fries’!

These look great! I really need to get a spiralizer since I love doing thinly sliced veggies and zucchini “pasta” – for now, I just ask my chef husband to do the fine chopping or have him teach me :)

katie @KatieDid June 11, 2012 at 8:18 am

I’ve never used a spiralizer, but it looks like a fun way to prepare veggies and potatoes. I’ve used a veggie peeler, maybe that would also work on potatoes, I’ll have to give it a try, this looks really delicious and right up my alley.

I love this!!! Reminds me of Arby’s fries…sort of…haha….

elise June 11, 2012 at 8:44 am

im not sure my spiralizer could handle a sweet potato! hmmm…looks good though. i have the same one as you guys, so did it take long or was it hard to do?

Angela June 11, 2012 at 8:48 am

What a great idea! Used to love Arby’s curly fries when I was a kid, this would be a much healthier alternative! Now I just need a spiralizer!

Elise it can handle it!!! it does require more effort than zucchini, just takes a little more patience to turn the handle!!

Lori and Michelle June 11, 2012 at 9:38 am

haha yep

Lori and Michelle June 11, 2012 at 9:39 am

Lindsay yes you do!

I just made this for lunch, and it was delicious! I didn’t have the ingredient on hand for the dressing, so I subbed in some hummus. Thank you for the wonderful lunch inspiration.

Lori and Michelle June 11, 2012 at 11:30 am

Leti awesome!! hummus is a great option!!

Oh my goodness! Now I need to get myself a spiralizer! This looks so amazing!! I literally want to make this right now! I guess I need to get shopping for a new kitchen appliance :) I totally agree that veggies taste different when they are cut in different ways. It is a little weird I guess

Sam @ Fit for My Fork June 11, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Looks delicious – I really want to get a spiralizer, I never would have thought to use it on a sweet potato though!

I want a spiralizer so bad! These look awesome. And yes, I agree the romaine lettuce rocks. I even love iceburg just for the crunch.

Lori and Michelle June 11, 2012 at 2:35 pm

thanks Liz

Lori and Michelle June 11, 2012 at 2:35 pm

Taylor you will love a spiralizer if you get one, truly the best way to jazz up vegetables.

Brittany @ Britt's Blurbs June 11, 2012 at 2:46 pm

OMG-YUM! Never would have thought to make sweet potato curly fries. Now I have to get a spiralizer! These look delicious!

Matt @ FaveGlutenFreeRecipes June 11, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Looks delicious! The farmer’s markets by me have been overflowing with all sorts of fresh greens, and this recipe looks like a great way to utilize that produce.

Sarah Greenman June 11, 2012 at 4:02 pm

I love my spiralizer and will certainly be trying this out!!!

We did make the sweet potato part of it. My spirlizer makes it a bit thinner but it still worked. A few were burned but most were crispy. Great idea!

Ana June 12, 2012 at 12:21 pm

These is such an awesome idea, I love it, going to buy sweet potatoes to make it asap!
I have the same spiralizer you guys do and I love it too, it is sooo cool! Zucchini noodles is one of my favorite things (but I love raw zucchini in every single way too!)
Thanks for sharing, this is brilliant!

Lori and Michelle June 12, 2012 at 1:13 pm
