Carrot Fries

Oven fries are popular in my house. They are tasty and make a great snack. I have a variety of potato and sweet potato fries in this space. Today I am posting carrot fries. I happened to buy a bunch of carrots last week but never got around to making the planned salads. I had to use them up and this was the perfect recipe.

This recipe really brings out the sweetness in the carrots so I like to add a hint of paprika to counter the sweet taste. You can use a variety of flavors or keep it simple with salt and pepper.

You will need (2 serving)
2 carrots
1 tsp. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
paprika or cayenne pepper to taste
cumin coriander seeds powder (optional)
oregano or basil (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F. Peel the carrots and cut it into long strips. Sprinkle oil, salt and pepper. Add the other optional ingredients. Combine and place on a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Take them out, turn them over and bake for another 20 minutes until carrots are cooked through and crispy
