5 stars from 3 ratings of Easy Carrot French Fries

Carrot french fries are a great way to use those last few carrots that linger in the bottom of the fridge, or simply as a way to spice up a familiar vegetable in a new and different way.

These are a great way to convince kids to eat vegetables, and they always vanish quickly.

They make a tasty and simple side dish at lunch or dinner - you can serve them up with ketchup, or just have them as they are.

Wash 5 to 6 medium-sized carrots and cut the ends off. You can peel them if you like, though I usually leave the skin on if it's fresh and not discolored. Preheat the oven to 425F.

Slice it up

Cut each carrot in half, lengthwise. Lay the halves on the cutting board, flat side down.

Slice each one in half lengthwise again, to make long thin sections. Cut these crosswise to make fries that are about 2 inches long.

Toss with olive oil

Put your carrots in a bowl, and add the pepper, salt, and olive oil. Toss them together until all the carrots are completely covered in a coating of oil.

Put the fries in the baking pan

Arrange on cookie sheets. You want some space in between them, if they're touching they'll end up soggy, instead of nice and crispy. Put them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Serve while hot. They're good as they are, or you can dip them in ketchup too. Enjoy!

      Looks delicious! I'll need to remember to try this one day.

      (I'm traveling at the moment, which is great, but I do miss my oven!)

      I made these today -dead easy for a novice like me.- I cooked mine at a little lower temperature and for 16-18 minutes, because I was impatient. They didn't have the wonderful crispness yours have but they were very tasty! next time I make them I'll follow your recipe very closely, I know I'll get great results if I do!
