I feel like all KitchenAid products should come with the guarantee, “You’ll love this item more than your children/spouse or your money back!”
While I can’t yet vouch for the children portion, I can verify that I love their products more than I love my husband. (; I mean, is there anything KitchenAid can’t do?
I assure you that my life would be in shambles without my stand mixer. Or immersion blender. Or ice cream mixer attachment. Or my spiralizer attachment.
Which brings me back to the original purpose of this post – I HAVE A SPRIALIZER NOW, YOU GUYS! And it’s magical.
Anyway, I miss potatoes. (No, I don’t have ADD. This is related, I promise.) To be more specific, I miss curly fries. All potatoes, really. But that’s not the point.
With my new spiralizer, I CAN MAKE CURLY FRIES! Life is perfect, once again.
Did I mention that they are zucchini curly fries. No? Well never fear! We’re in this together, good or bad…
They’re actually really good! BUT (you should have known there was gonna be a but) they’re not crispy. 😦
I baked them for 20 minutes at 325 degrees and put them under the broiler for a few minutes and some of them became crisp, but most refused.
I’m not ready to call this one a failure – as I said, they’re yummy – but I am going to try a couple different things to try and yield different results.
It’s time for the deep fryer. Well, not right now. In a couple days. I’m lazy and don’t want to clean mine. I’ll probably actually try them using parchment paper instead of tin foil first (which was my original intent until I found out that my husband put the empty parchment container back on the shelf…).
Anyway, here’s what I did.
- 2 medium zucchinis (about six inches)
- 2 tbsp olive oil (or bacon grease)
- 2 tbsp of your favorite seasoning mix (I did seasoned salt, pepper, and Parmesan)
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper
2. Spriralize zucchini (if you don’t have a spiralizer, you can just cut thin strips)
3. Coast zucchini with olive oil and seasoning mix
4. Place zucchini in a single layer, season more if desired
5. Bake for around 30 minutes, or until they begin to brown
Feel free to make any modifications and let me know how your’s turn out!
