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.
Carrot fries 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!
Oh wow! I never thought to do this. I always do sweet potato, but will give this a try. Does it taste similar to sweet potato? Looks delish!
It is closer to sweet potatoes/yams then it is to regular potatoes but they definitely taste like carrots!
I'm always looking for ways to get my son to eat his veggies. Can't wait to try it!
Yum, these sound so good! We love sweet potato fries, so we'll have to try carrots. I wonder what else you can fry like french fries? Thanks for sharing on the Homestead Blog Hop!
Sounds great and so healthy. I make homemade sweet potatoes fries with coconut oil – I can't eat too many carrots (have a sensitivity to them). Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted! Have a healthy happy blessed New Years!
These sound/look really good!
I have not thought to do this. Will be trying since carrots are a great source of nutrients during the winter months. Thanks for sharing at Let's Get Real.
Love this idea! We've tried winter squash as fries but never carrots so this is really fun! Thanks so much for sharing on the Healthy Living Link Party 🙂 We hope to see you back soon!
These carrot fries sounds like a great alternative to regular french fries and much healthier. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & tweeted!
What a healthy alternative to regular potatoes! thanks for sharing on lets get real
