Oven Baked Carrot Fries tossed with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley for a deliciously healthy snack recipe. Just add your favorite dipping sauce! Gluten-free, vegan.
If you've got the February blues, I've got just the right, bright antidote. Oven-baked carrot fries, friends.
The orange vegetable usually taking up space in your fridge drawer makes for some really excellent fries. (And with the extras, learn how to make carrot salad!)
These carrot fries have been my solution to those cozy days when the salty snack cravings hit.
Full of beta carotene, vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium, and calcium, and you've got yourself a powerhouse of goodness in one humble vegetable.
While these sunny, salty sticks are the prize, having something equally as delicious to dip them in is a bonus.
Roasted vegetables make for the easiest side dishes.
