Baked Carrot Fries drizzled with Tahini

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday 🙂

Today’s blog post is extra special because I am part of a collaboration emphasizing the beauty and versatility of carrots! Who knew carrots weren’t just meant to be in a cake or eaten as a snack? There is so much more that can be done with this delicious & healthy vegetable. I am sure we have all had fries using types of potatoes but have you ever made carrot fries? To be particular, these are oven baked carrot fries with an herb tahini sauce. These are extremely tasty and simple to make. They are also a much better alternative to french fries!

Hopefully, this post will inspire you to look at vegetables differently and allow you to be more creative in the kitchen 🙂 Below are some awesome food bloggers and Instagrammers who also highlighted carrots. Check out the hashtag #24carrotgoals on Instagram as well. I doubt you will ever look at carrots the same after this!

carrot fries

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

8 large carrots

1 1/2 tbsp fresh finely chopped rosemary

1 tbsp fresh chopped dill

1-2 tbsp olive oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp paprika

carrots

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 420 degrees F. Place the baking pan you will be using in the oven to preheat as well.
  • In the meantime, cut the top of your carrot and peel off the skin. Cut carrots in half horizontally then cut them lengthwise till you get them into the shape of fries. The thinner the fries; the crispier they will be.
  • Combine carrot sticks in a bowl with all the above ingredients.
  • Lay the carrot sticks scattered onto the hot baking pan. Do not clutter.
  • Place in the oven to bake for about 20 minutes till carrots are tender and appear to be crisp.

Tahini Sauce Ingredients

1 cup of parsley or cilantro

1/2 tsp finely chopped jalapeno (optional for heat)

1/2 a fresh lemon’s juice

2 tbsp tahini

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/4 cup water (thins out the sauce-add more if needed)

Instructions

  • Blend all these ingredients in a food processor till smooth.
