How to Make Chip Slices With the Inspiralizer (Video!)

I woke up yesterday with a fierce sore throat… on one side of my throat. Weird, right?

At about 11am, I started to develop the aches and a runny nose.

Now, at 7:30pm on Tuesday night, I’m sitting here with a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and a roll of toilet paper – that’s how runny my nose is. Ick.

Is there a doctor in the house?!

I always get sick when the temperatures change – always around this time of year. I guess my body’s rebelling against the cold temps (and I don’t blame it.)

Howeverrrrrr, I do like the food that comes along with the chillier weather – gratins, lasagnas, casseroles, you know – the cheesy, good stuff.

Now that I’m Inspiralized (yea, I said it), the word “gratin” or “lasagna” doesn’t mean “unhealthy” anymore – because by swapping the pasta for a spiralized vegetable can totally change its nutritional makeup.

I love to use the Inspiralizer for making disc-shaped slices of veggies to use in gratins and casseroles, especially this time of the year and into the winter and holidays.

But, Ali, how?? How do I use the Inspiralizer to do this? Don’t I need a mandolin?

No, my friends. I’m here to show you (with a brand new video!) how you can effortlessly make disc-shaped spiralized slices! And don’t forget, you can use them to make healthy baked chips, too!

Before I get to the video, here are a couple of my favorite recipes that use the chip slice on the Inspiralizer:

Now that you have the recipes, here’s how to do it:

Red bell pepper Ali! It'll knock that sore throat right out. Eat raw slivers of it. Keeps it moist too. I do it all the time. Here's one article: Get well!!

Thank you for doing a video of this! I knew you were supposed to use Blade A for chips but I couldn't figure out if you were supposed to spiralize one long strand and then snip them. If you were doing a potato/sweet potato would you also recommend making the same cut lengthwise and not all the way through? Thanks!
M says:
I hope you get well soon. I was exactly like that last week. Ginger and turmeric are a good help in these days. This idea for the spiralizer is really great? No more slicing my fingers in the mandoline to make ratatouille or gratin :)
Athelene says:
Thank you! Great tip for using a very useful gizmo. I am just setting up a blog to talk about my love for all things gadgety. I've been talking up my spiralizer for some time. I'll be including it in one of my reviews. I'll save a link to this page to point people to where to get the best tips on using it. Thanks for your work.

Well, now, that's just brilliant! I'm loving the idea of gratins using veggie chips. Get well soon. And btw, my sister, who lives in Jersey (Fort Lee) swears by hot & sour soup from the nearest Chinese takeout place whenever a cold comes on. It works! She (and I) buy a quart, or even two, and ask them to add extra garlic (for its restorative powers) and let that soup work its magic.
Jane says:
Thanks Ali for your great recipes. I have an older Spiralizer with only 3 blades ... which one would I use for these chips. Can't wait to try this.
HELL YES!!! I was about to buy a mandolin but it looks like I'm holding off for now....can't wait to try this with sweet potato! Thanks Ali!
Peg Adams says:
Ali this sounds wonderful! I hope you feel better....have hot tea with honey and lemon. It works wonders for a sore throat! Mine are caused by the air conditioning being on 24/7 for 6 months here in Arizona. I also use essential oils--occasionally I make a 'tea' by getting a cup of hot water, and putting a drop each of peppermint and lemon oil in it. Breathe in, then drink. Peppermint helps with congestion and lemon will ease a sore throat. Feel better!
Martha Danielson says:
Perfect idea for making sweet pickle chips from cucumbers.
Cathy says:
I am all the way over in Australia and I also have the same bug - which seems to go and come back I recommend Garlic and horse radish vitamin tablets and vitamin c tablets. these help to stop your nose running so much Also apple cider vinegar taken twice a day helps with the sinuses , and a good chicken soup with garlic never hurt anybody. All your posts are wonderful, but my daughter was complaining that I threw out our mandolin and she couldn't make thin chips , so glad you share your clever ideas Thanks again Cathy

Thanks so much for the tips you post! This one and the one about making 'macaroni' have been well used at my house! Keep up the great work, love the recipes too :)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
