Roasted Carrot Fries
Hello everyone, I hope this day has found you well. Today I am going to share a recipe with you that my kids will tell you they hate but whenever I make them there are no leftovers and they constantly tell me to make these again. I think they just do not want to admit they like something that is good for them to be honest. This is so much better for you and has a lot more nutrients and vitamins than your typical fry. If your kids still don't want to try these then serve them with ketchup everything tastes better in ketchup to a kid. So I will get started on this amazing wannabe junk food but isnt recipe.
1/2 teaspoon of fresh basil (use a pinch if you have dried)
1/2 teaspoon of fresh rosemary (use a pinch if you have dried)
1/2 teaspoon of fresh parsley (you get the drill if you have dried)
1/2 teaspoon of fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon of fresh sage
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to your liking
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and line a large cookie sheet with foil. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil on the foiled pan. Peel and slice your carrots to where they look like french fries. To do this just cut them in thirds and slice them in half length wise. Then just slice them again length wise to desired thickness. Now chop up your fresh herbs very fine. Put your peeled and sliced carrots on the foiled pan and drizzle with remaining extra virgin olive oil, herbs and black pepper, DO NOT USE THE SALT YET! Put the carrots in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, just until the edges of the carrots get browned. After 20 minutes pull them out of the oven and while they are still hot give them a generous sprinkle of sea salt. Plate them up immediately and enjoy! You can pair these with burgers, chicken tenders, salad or like we did with scrambled pepper eggs. However you pair these fries you will love them. Who says that fries have to be a zillion calories and loaded down with grease? Not me that is for sure! Until next time everyone live, laugh and love.
