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


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


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!)
