Baked Carrot Fries

 I love trying new side dishes, but I don't want to put a lot of effort into them because it's just a side and during the week there is just so little time! Tonight I made carrot fries to go with our turkey burgers. They were so delicious! Carrots have such a natural sweetness that really comes through when you cook them. They were quick and easy to make and healthy and delicious to eat!

  • 1 lb carrots
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel and cut one pound of carrots in half, then slice lengthwise into "fry size" strips.
  3. Spray with or toss lightly with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and garlic powder, if you wish. 
  5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until they are slightly browned and tender.   


  1. And, yes, Whit did put ketchup on hers if anyone was wondering.

  2. Correction: She TRIED it on ONE.

  3. I don't know Nick, ketchup isn't even listed as an (optional) ingredient.

  4. Forget DaVinci's. Next time we hang out, can CD and I just come over for dinner? ;)

  5. Heather-
    Of course you can! Well, once you can stand the smell of cooking again... :)

  6. Oooh I LOVE this idea! I just made sweet potato fries, but now I really want to make carrot fries :)
