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.
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!?!
This veggie filled sweet potato fries wrap was just want we needed –
- quick and easy meal
- healthy and balanced dish
- colorful and vibrant
Baked Sweet Potato Fries
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 1/8 tsp cayenne (1/4 tsp if you like it hot)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Skin the sweet potatoes. Spiralize each potato. We used this spiralizer. Once both sweet potatoes are spiralized, place in a bowl and toss with coconut oil, cayenne, and cinnamon.
Place fries onto cookie tray and bake for about 30 minutes.
If you have a dehydrator and want to make these fries raw, place them onto mesh tray and dehydrate at 110 for 4-6 hours, to till desired texture is achieved.
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!)
Sweet Potato Veggie Wrap
- whole romaine lettuce leaves
- creamy spread
- sliced carrots, or whatever you got on hand
- batch of sweet potato fries
Spread some of the creamy sauce inside each romaine leave, top with sliced carrots and curly sweet potato fries.
Then just roll it up and enjoy!
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
