Carrot Fries

Looking for an alternative to French Fries? Last night we tried these Carrot Fries!

I was eXciTeD to find that I actually LOVED how they tasted! There are healthier versions out there, which don’t include sugar, but I’m all about having P E A C E and the thought of switching from regular french fries to this recipe was more likely to result in success. And it did–I really like them!

  • 1 12lbs carrots (I used a 1 lb. bag of baby carrots and cut them in half)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped (I used dry parsley flakes instead)
  • 1 pinch pepper
  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a shallow pan with foil.
  2. Using a sharp knife, slice away the tip and end of each carrot; peel each completely.
  3. Cut carrots in half crosswise, then cut lengthwise, then cut lengthwise again.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the carrot sticks, olive oil, rosemary, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir until all are evenly coated.
  5. Place carrots in pan, spreading sticks out as much as possible. Bake for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature.

What healthy alternatives have you had good luck with? I’d love to try it!!
