Sometimes we need to get creative with our vegetables and these Oven Baked Carrot Fries do just that! I mean who doesn’t like a fry? They are a favorite amongst kids and adults alike. 

This idea hit me one day when I had some carrots that had been in the fridge for awhile. I knew they were about to go bad and wanted to use them up. 

However, I didn’t have any hummus on hand which is my usual carrot dip and thought to myself a carrot fry sounds good. That’s when the wheels started turning. 

Can I just say, boy was I right! These fries remind me of sweet potato fries. They have that same savory and sweet factor that everyone knows and loves of a sweet potato fry. The best part is this recipe is super simple and requires just one pan and 7 ingredients. 

Let’s get cooking!

Ingredient Notes:

  • Carrots – You can keep the skin on your carrots, just make sure to wash them. The skin is actually the most nutrient dense part of the carrot. 
  • Olive Oil – Any neutral tasting oil will work. 
  • Spices – These are essential for that signature seasoned fry taste. Don’t skip them! 
  • Salt & Pepper – I like to use sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for all of my recipes.

Ingredients
 

  • 5 large carrots quartered
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Wash and dry your carrots. No need to peel them just wash them well. Cut them in half and then down the middle and then quarter them.
  • Now to a medium sized bowl add your carrots and olive oil and toss with your hands to coat them in the oil.
  • Season with salt, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper and toss again to make sure they are evenly coated in your seasonings.
  • Place on your sheet pan in a single layer.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown, flipping half way through.
  • Serve with ketchup or your preferred dipping sauce.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Depending on the size of your carrot you may need to cut your carrot halves into three. Just try to make them as much as a fry like size as possible.
  • If you don't have parchment paper these have enough oil to simply place them directly onto the sheet pan. I like to use parchment as it makes for easy clean up.
  • These are delicious with any dipping sauce that you like with a traditional fry!
