Author Jessica


  • 8 cups Spiralized Veggies butternut squash, zucchini, beets, etc.
  • 4-8 cups Vegetable Oil for frying (amount dependent on the size of pan you are using)

"French Fry" Coating

  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 Egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chipotle Powder

Chipotle Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chipotle Powder
  • Kosher Salt pinch


  • Dry the spiralized vegetables with a paper towel to remove any excess water.
  • Line a large plate with 4-5 sheets of paper towel for draining cooked fries on.

"French Fry" Coating

  • In a large bowl combine water, flour, beaten egg, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and chipotle powder. Wisk to combine the batter.
  • Dump all of your spiralized vegetables into the batter, using a pair of tongs move the vegetables around to fully coat.

Chipotle Dipping Sauce

  • In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, rice vinegar, chipotle powder, and salt. Stir to combine, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Frying the Veggie Curly Fries

  • In your cast iron pan (see above) pour in your oil. Only fill the pan about half way full. You need to leave plenty of room for the frying/bubbles.
  • Place the pan onto the stove and turn the heat on medium. Let your oil heat completely before starting to fry your curly fries.
  • To get the best results use a thermometer to measure the temperature of the oil. Bring the oil up to a temperature of 375°F - 400°F
  • When the oil is heated up, using tongs, grab around 1-2 cups of the sprialized vegetables. Let the batter slightly drip off the vegetables before transfering them to the oil.
  • Place the vegetables into the oil, gently and carefully spread them out so they are in a nice thin layer. Let them fry until they are golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
  • When they are done frying, using tongs remove the curly fries and place on paper towel lined plate and let them drain. Once they have cooled slightly you can break up the fries more to separate them.
  • Repeat the above steps for frying until all of the veggie curly fries are cooked.
