The Big 10 Paleo Spiralizer Cookbook 10

I like to bake my veggie curly fries because it’s a little easier, but sometimes I’m really in the mood for actual fried fries. For this recipe, turnip noodles are trimmed into curly fry–size pieces and then fried in a shallow pan with ghee. Ghee is clarified butter with a high smoke point, so it’s ideal for frying veggies. Plus, it’s absolutely delicious and adds a great nutty quality to the dish.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 Minutes


  • 3 tablespoons ghee
  • 3 small round turnips, peeled, spiralized, and trimmed
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the ghee. Working in batches, add the turnip fries and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they start to brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Transfer the fries from the skillet to a paper towel–lined plate, repeat with the remaining noodles, and serve.
