Carrot Fries

If you love french fries (made with potatoes), but want to make a snack you can eat as an “unlimited food” (which makes them guilt-free according to the Adrenal Reset Diet).  Because instead of carbs, you are going to love carrot fries!

You are baking them instead of frying them, so they are super healthy. The goal is to get them just slightly burnt because that’s where they caramelize and the flavor completely changes. If you don’t get them slightly burnt, then they will taste like boring baked carrots. Trust me….the magic is in that burnt part!

I even made a video showing you how to make them…with a guest appearance from Dr. C explaining why carrots are not considered to be a carb.

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425.
2. Cut carrots into small “fries” and you can do this by one of the following ways: – by cutting baby carrots in quarters lengthwise – cutting full-length carrots in half, then quartering them – using a veggie chopping tool that cuts food into “fries”.

3. Lightly spray your pan with oil
4. Place the carrots on the pan and try not to let them touch the other carrots
5. Lightly spray the carrots with oil. Then season with salt.

6. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over (or stir around). Then bake for another 15 minutes. The goal is to get them golden so they are just slightly burnt.

 

Ingredients:

  • Carrots
  • Avocado Oil – in a spray
  • Salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425.
2. Cut carrots into small “fries” and you can do this by one of the following ways: – by cutting baby carrots in quarters lengthwise – cutting full-length carrots in half, then quartering them – using a veggie chopping tool that cuts food into “fries”.

6. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over (or stir around). Then bake for another 15 minutes. The goal is to get them golden so they are just slightly burnt because that’s where they caramelize and the flavor completely changes.

Some ovens might require an additional 5 minutes on both sides.

*If you are cooking multiple trays of carrot fries, you may need to double the baking time. If you can, cook only 1 tray at a time.

Best when served warm.

***To shake things up you can play around with other spices like smoked paprika, or garlic, or rosemary, or chives…or you can combine several spices so your carrot fries are uniquely yours. What are your favorite seasonings to use?
