Everyone loves fries. They are that great side that goes with so many dishes. The downside to fries being that they are usually fried and thus high in fats (and usually not the good kind) and potatoes just don’t have a ton going on for them. That’s not to say that potatoes are something to be avoided but why make fries out of potatoes when there are carrots fries to be had?
That’s right! Fries made out of carrots!!! One day, my children were getting a bit tired of carrots but unfortunately for them, we bought a huge bag of carrots. Out of this ten pound bag of carrot torture, the amazing carrot fries were born. They are a huge hit with my kids. My oldest even rated them better then restaurant potato fries!
3 cups carrots – sliced into fry-like shapes
2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1/2 tsp. salt
herbs or spices of your choice (I’ve been adding Italian seasoning)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spread carrots evenly on a pan (one with a lip to it).
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
That’s it! So simple!
