Why these carrot fries are so awesome

Carrots – Carrots are naturally sweet and roast very similar to how potato french fries do with a salty outer layer and tender center. Only their natural sweetness carnalizes slightly and creates to most robust flavors mixed with the garlic parmesan coating.

Garlic parmesan coating– Feel free to make this carrot fries recipe plain without this coating, but the garlicy-cheese coating provides extra crispiness and tantalizing flavor similar to that on Baked Zucchini Parmesan Chips.

What ingredients go into this recipe

  • For the fries: orange carrots, washed and peeled with stems removed
  • For the coating: eggs, apple cider vinegar, Parmesan cheese, almond meal, garlic powder, salt, parsley, thyme, and baking soda. Baking soda helps to fluff it all together as it activates with the vinegar.

How to make these fries out of carrots

STEP 1: Peel and slice carrots horizontally in half then into quarter strips about 4-inches long. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

STEP 2: In a small bowl whisk the egg with apple cider vinegar. Put the carrots and egg vinegar mixture in a one-gallon Ziploc bag, seal, shake and mix together until coated.

STEP 3: In another bowl, mix together the almond meal, parmesan cheese, parsley, baking soda, salt, and thyme.

STEP 4: Add the egg and carrots mixture (from above). Mix well with a spoon to coat each carrot with the almond meal cheese mixture.

STEP 4: Spread the coated carrots evenly on the prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper and add any extra coating on top if needed, making sure not to overlap any of the carrot strips. Bake 10 minutes, flip the carrots and bake another 5-10 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve with a side of organic ketchup or ranch dressing.

Frequently asked questions and Tips

Can I make carrot fries without this coating?

Yes you can skip the coating and simple toss the carrots in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake the prepared carrots at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, then flip and bake another 5-10 minutes.

Can you reheat garlic parmesan carrot fries for later?

Heat them in the oven, not the microwave so that they have a crispier texture. To reheat this carrot fries recipe bake them at 350 for about 5-7 minutes on a sheet pan, making sure they do not overlap.

What if my carrot fries burned?

If the fries burned, they may have been sliced too thin. Make sure they are the size of smaller french fries, about ¼ inch thick or thicker. The thicker the fry, the more baking time will be needed and the thinner the fry less time is needed. Check them after 10 minutes of baking to gage their time.

What if my breading topping clumped together?

The topping will clump slightly, so use your hands if need to spread the topping out over the fries, and pour any extra on top. The may also be a result that the carrots were not fully dried before coating.
