Here’s an awesome way to get the kids to eat some veggies, and a low-carb alternative to potatoes, Carrot Fries! Tossed with some olive oil, fresh garlic, salt and pepper, make this a simple side to add to any dish!
These things are super easy to make, 5 minutes prep, then 20 minutes in the oven while you cook your main dish, and taste amazing! The garlic give them a nice savory flavor that makes dipping them in various sauces really delicious! I actually really liked these in mustard. Yes. Mustard.
This has been one of the few times that I’ve actually gotten my son to willingly eat more than 2 bites of a vegetable! I’m calling the carrot fries a win. I don’t care if he drenched it in ranch and then just ate the ranch by itself. IT’S A WIN!
I was turned on to carrot fries a few years ago during a workout program I had done, they weren’t made like this, they had some odd seasonings in them. This was way better. Simple, and loaded with flavor. If you’re a garlic fan, this is right up you’re alley, and you wont want to share!
Just a disclaimer, don’t expect these to be crispy, they eat like a nicely cooked french fry, which is how I like them, just a little soggy. I’m getting hungry all over again, thinking about it. I should have made a double batch!
Not much more I can say about these carrot fries, other than MAKE THEM NOW!!!
