Garlic Parmesan–Baked Carrot Fries

Standard

11

These carrot fries are a super delicious, super healthy snack. I have to admit that I used leftover carrots from our Thanksgiving dinner, so my fries did not come out quite as crisp as fresh carrots would have. However, it was a great use of the leftover carrots, and it gave me a good idea of what the texture of the baked carrot would be. Try to grate your parmesan into a fine “powder”, if possible. I think that it would have coated the carrots better than my example here. We found that the Dipping Sauce was way too salty for us (I would cut the amount o garlic salt to at least one-half teaspoon). You can substitute Ranch dressing or try to adapt the recipe for the sauce to your taste. Perfect as a snack or served as a side.
