I’m on a spiralizer kick lately. I made a batch of creamy vegan zoodles earlier today, and then it hit me: I needed to spiralize sweet potatoes and transform them into crispy, garlicky bites of deliciousness next. That’s how this recipe for spiralized garlic rosemary sweet potato fries was born.
I loaded up on organic sweet potatoes during a recent visit to Trader Joe’s. It’s hard to find organic sweet potatoes locally, which sucks since there isn’t a Trader Joe’s in my city – or even my county. Trader Joe’s sells a giant bag of them for less than $5, so check there if you want to buy sweet potatoes in bulk for this recipe.
I used 2 large sweet potatoes for this recipe. It’s amazing how many spiralized noodles emerge from a single sweet potato. I’m always impressed by the expanding pile of veggie noodles as I turn the handle on my spiralizer.
See? Told you they’re awesome.
Cook time varies drastically for this recipe because I have no way of knowing the size of your spiralized sweet potatoes. That’s why you’ll notice a significant variation in cook time when you check out the recipe instructions below.
Start by pouring olive oil in a mixing bowl, then stir in garlic powder and garlic salt. I didn’t take a picture of this step, so use your imagination.
Add all of your spiralized sweet potatoes to the mixing bowl and coat them with the olive oil mixture. Transfer them to a foil-lined tray.
Some spiralized sweet potatoes might fall apart during this process. Then again, I was the kid who always destroyed Slinkies in a day or two, so your potatoes might look way better than mine.
Leave some space between your sweet potato fries. If you pile them on top of each other, they’ll end up stuck together. You’ll also have uncooked spots.
When your fries are on the foil-lined tray, sprinkle them with minced garlic and fresh rosemary.
No need to get crazy with it (unless you want to). Garlic and rosemary both have strong flavors.
See that spiralized sweet potato on the bottom left? I’m extra proud of that one. It’s one of the only sweet potatoes I didn’t mangle during the transfer from the mixing bowl to the baking tray.
Pop your spiralized sweet potato fries in the oven for 15 to 25 minutes. Make sure to flip them halfway during the baking process.
I forgot to flip my first batch. See what happened?
They were still good, though. I ate every last one of them.
Sprinkle your sweet potato fries with sea salt after you remove them from the oven. Wait a few minutes before devouring them or you’ll burn your tongue. Don’t ask how I know this.
Spiralized sweet potato fries pair well with avocado sauce, ketchup, and barbecue sauce. You can also eat them plain. That’s what I do.
