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!
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:
- Olive oil
- 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
Step 1: Peel the potatoes and make some potato twisters using the ribbon attachment of a Spiralizer.
Step 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.
Step 3: Place the twisters on a baking sheet without overlapping each other. You might have to use two baking sheets.
Step 4: Bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them to prevent them from browning too much.
Enjoy!! :) I’ve served these Potato Twisters with an amazing Avocado Coriander Dip.
