Crispy Potato Twisters with an Avocado Coriander Dip

Recipe for vegan, super crispy Potato Twisters served with an Avocado Coriander Dip. It’s a healthy alternative to the traditionally fried twisters because these are baked in the oven!

Crispy Potato Twisters I love the potato twisters (or tornado potatoes, spiral potatoes, twisted chips or ribbon fries – whatever you want to call them!) you can get at winter markets here. But they are usually fried in oil. So these homemade Potato Twisters are a much healthier alternative because they are baked in the oven. Yet, they are perfectly crispy.

For this occasion, I even got out my Spiral Slicer from the very back of the pantry. I haven’t been using it a lot lately. It’s shame really because ribboned or spiralized veggies are so cute!

The Ingredients for Potato Twisters

These Oven-Baked Potato Twisters are actually super easy to make. You’ll only need 5 ingredients:

  • Potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Paprika Powder
  • Curry Powder

Of course, you can also make an executive decision and opt for different spices. I’d imagine they would be great as well with rosemary or a cheesy version with Nutritional Yeast? Or how about Za’atar? So many options!

How to make Potato Twisters

Crispy Potato TwistersStep 1: Peel the potatoes and make some potato twisters using the ribbon attachment of a Spiralizer.

Crispy Potato TwistersStep 2: Put the potato twisters in a bowl and add in the oil, salt, paprika, and curry powder. Mix well until they are evenly coated.

Crispy Potato TwistersStep 3: Place the twisters on a baking sheet without overlapping each other. You might have to use two baking sheets.

Crispy Potato TwistersStep 4: Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them to prevent them from browning too much.

Oh, these look wonderful. The crispy potato snack with out frying is a bit of a "holy grail", you know? We will have to give these a try. That tip about maximum temp is a good one. We have tried in the past but not that hot. Thanks for this one! Lovely photos, too. :-)

Thank you so much Greg! It would be much faster to fry them but I'm not a fan of the excess oil. They take quite some time in the oven! Also try to make them evenly thin, because otherwise some would be soggy while the other ones ending burned.

I just recently bought a spiralizer and love it. My first attempt at sweet potato fries where soggy. Maybe to much oil and not spread out enough on the cookie sheets. What tempeture did you cook yours at?

Hihi, I love mine as well! :D I haven't tried these with sweet potatoes yet, I used normal potatoes. But I've made some sweet potato fries before and noticed that they stay a bit softer than normal potatoes. When they get soggy, my guess would be to use less oil and leave them in the oven a bit longer? :) My oven's maximum heat is 250°C (about 482°F), which is what I used.

Ooh, these look so good! They look super crispy - I didn't know you could get them that way in the oven. :) I have been using my mandonline to make potato crisps but now I want to try spiral shapes.

Yeah, in the oven it takes some time but I still prefer it to the fried counterpart. And together with the dip these potato twisters were heaven. Yumm. You're potato crisps sounds lovely!
