See previous post for a pic! Nope, those weren't sweet potato fries, they were carrot fries! Ok ok, maybe calling them fries is a bit of a stretch. But so is calling oven-baked sweet potato fries a french fry. And these carrot fries are a similar texture to sweet potato fries. I made mine pretty salty, to mute the overly sweet taste oven baked carrots can get. They were really yummy, and a nice lower-starch alternative to sweet potato fries, which I can't really eat anyways.
6-8 med/large carrots (you could use your veg peeler to get the skins off first, but I didn't) sliced lengthwise and then halved again, and then cut into very thin sticks. The thinner they're cut the crisper they'll turn out.
1 tbsp kosher/sea salt
2 tbsp EVOO
optional: 1/2 tsp cayenne, or black pepper
Preheat your oven to 450. On a large baking sheet toss your carrots together with your EVOO and seasonings, make sure they are all coated well and spread out evenly so they crisp up rather than steam. I baked mine for 30 minutes, but start checking at 25. I wanted mine as crisp as possible rather than soggy, and I ended up burning a few in the process, which is fine because this makes quite a lot!
Once again, we ate these with my homemade ketchup, but some homemade/organic ranch would be awesome too! Have fun guys! XoXoGFG
