Carrot French Fries

I enjoy cooking from scratch and am always looking for simple recipes that taste good especially vegetable recipes.  My family and I could certainly use more vegetables in our diet, so I was super excited when I found a recipe for carrot fries.  I must confess I was a bit skeptical about trying these because I’m not a big fan of carrots and can’t imagine having them as fries.  The result - delicious, easy to make and tasted like sweet potato fries!  These are a winner for me and have become part of rotations.

Here’s what I did:

Scrubbed 2 lbs of carrots.

Peel the carrots ….and save the carrot peels for homemade chicken stock.  I keep a scrap bag in the freezer for onion & carrot peels. 

Cut the carrots into French fries.

Toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt (I use sea salt) and pepper.  Arrange carrots in a single layer on baking sheet.  My special touch is to sprinkle a bit of brown sugar (see my homemade brown sugar recipe here) over the carrots.  Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes on each side until cooked and crispy.  You can find the recipe I used here.  Enjoy!  TLFF
