Description

These baked carrot fries are a simple side to go with burgers or chicken and pair perfectly with ketchup.


Ingredients

  • 68 medium carrots (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Arrange your carrots on a cutting board.
  3. Cut the ends off of the carrots.
  4. Peel the carrots.
  5. Slice into matchsticks, each about the width of a pencil.
  6. Place the sliced carrots onto a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt.
  7. Spread out as evenly as possible (this will help them to get a little crisp in spots, which makes them really yummy).
  8. Bake for 20-24 minutes or until just starting to brown and are soft in texture. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

Notes

Tips:

  • Try to cut the carrots to a similar size so they bake evenly.
  • Coat the carrots with olive oil well by tossing around the pan.
  • Spread the carrots out so they aren’t overlapping so they bake well, and use a second sheet pan if needed to achieve this.
  • Add additional flavor by sprinkling with sesame seeds, Everything Bagel seasoning, cumin or even cinnamon.
  • Serve with a dip such as ketchup, Ranch, or honey.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
