Spiralized Potatoes

SPIRALIZED POTATO Potatoes are so fun and tasty, and even though potatoes > canned or frozen food, spiralized potatoes are the equivalent of my junk food. With a higher glycemic index than other veggies, potatoes are the least healthy of the spiralizeable vegetable family (yeah, that’s a thing).  It’s worth a special note that spiralized potatoes fry extremely well.  If you get cravings for chips… I’m pretty sure it’s faster to fry a spiralized and salted potato than it is to run to the convenience store.  Not that I’ve tried.

  • Amazing bang for buck!
  • Great introductory vegetable when cooking spiralized for others – everyone has eaten potatoes and it will come as a shock to try it in a completely different form!
