I’m always on the lookout for healthier versions of favorite foods and fun ways to eat more veggies. I usually put chopped carrots in salads, but that can get boring.
Carrot fries are so simple to make, I can whip them up with any meal.
How To Make Oven Baked Carrot Fries:
- Gather about 7 medium-sized carrots, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
4. Peel the carrot and slice into “french fry” shapes (see below).
5. Add the carrot slices to a medium-sized bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. See the recipe card below for printable recipe details.
6. Place carrot slices on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (See below). Try to have space between the fries on the baking sheet, which can be challenging. The fries will shrink a little as they bake.
7. Bake carrot fries for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and flip the fries and bake for another 10 minutes or until done. They’ll be slightly browned, but not burned, somewhat crispy, and delicious!
8. Sprinkle with chopped parsley (optional) and serve with your favorite condiment.
Tips and Substitutions For Carrot Fries:
- For extra spice, add a pinch of onion powder, paprika, garlic powder, or even ground cinnamon to carrot fries before baking.
- Line carrot fries on the baking pan making sure there is space between the fries (they’ll get crispier).
- Serve with your favorite condiment. Ketchup, dips are great with carrot fries.
