I made these DELICIOUS “Carrot Fries” two nights ago – and ate them up so very fast! 🙂

It’s an extremely simple recipe and quite good. You can add cumin or pepper or mint – whatever flavorful addition you so desire. The great thing is, they still taste good with ketchup!

Carrot Fries

Ingredients:

one large bunch of raw carrots (the bigger the better, although you could conceivably make this with baby carrots – they just shrink a lot when you cook them, so the longer strips seem to work better… otherwise you may have carrot “bites”! :))

sea salt and/or kosher salt (bigger grains)

olive oil

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 475 

2. Slice carrots several times (I did once in half, then down the middle, then down the middle of those two halves, and sometimes more – I like them skinny)

3. Toss carrots in a bowl with olive oil (as much as necessary to give them a light coating) and sea salt

4. Line them up (you can cut and use quite a few!) on a baking sheet and lightly salt with larger salt granules

5. Bake for 30 minutes+ (I baked them and took some out as they became crispy… they do not all cook for the same amount of time, necessarily) until golden brown/desired texture (crunchy – for me!!)

6. Remove and enjoy with katsup, spice of your choice, or just simply plain – they are yummy! (and taste very little like carrots… this is a great substitute for McDonald’s fries!)

Enjoy!
