Tasty Tips: Baked Carrot Fries

I’ve got a yummy, easy, and healthy recipe to share with you. Who doesn’t love french fries, right? But in general, they aren’t the healthiest food … and that leaves something to be desired. If you haven’t tried you are missing out! They are delicious and easily satisfy any fry craving.

You can buy whole carrots (and use your Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth to get your carrots extra clean), or use the pre-cut bags of carrots, if you’re running short on time.

Tasty Tip!-Carrot FriesIngredients
1 pound carrots (about 10-12 medium carrots)
1½ tbsp olive oil (get real olive oil here)
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp thyme

Instructions
Turn the oven to 400°. Start by washing the carrots and peeling them (peeling is optional. I use organic carrots and don’t peel them and they turn out fine). Cut the carrots into even sticks that are roughly 4 inches long and about ½ inch thick.

Put the cut carrots into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Then sprinkle the salt, pepper, herbs and spices on top. Stir the carrots to evenly coat with the oil and spices.

Place the carrots on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure the carrots are evenly spread and not stacked on top of each other.

Put the carrots in the oven and bake for about 25-35 minutes, checking halfway through to move the carrots around or flip them on the sheet to get even cooking.

Once you can pierce the carrots easily with a fork and there is a slight browning/crisping on the edges, they are done. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
