Easy & Delicious Side Dish: Carrot Fries

As a mom, I love finding fun new ways to incorporate veggies into our meals.  My kids love french fries and carrots, so I figured why not give carrot fries a try! Also, it's super easy and you can prep ahead and just toss and bake!

Basic Ingredients:

7-8 Whole Carrots (more or less depending on family size)
Olive Oil
Sea Salt


Peel and chop carrots into sticks.  Toss carrots in olive oil. Lay flat on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake at 425 degrees for a half-hour or until carrots are tender.  Optional: Broil for a few minutes to gain crispiness.

Serve with dipping sauce of your choice.  We recommend hummus, ketchup, ranch, blue cheese.

Optional flavorings:
You can toss the carrots with any of the following to add extra flavor to your "fries" before baking.
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Smoke Paprika
Italian Seasoning
