If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the ridiculous amount of carrots I pulled out of my garden about a week ago. Holy crap, I thought, what the hell am I going to do with ALL of these carrots? One of my friends tagged me in a carrot french fry recipe on facebook, so here it is!
I had planted a variety of carrots in the spring and honestly didn’t expect much from them since well …. I REALLLLYYY don’t have a green thrumb.
I was pleasantly surprised with an overabundance of colorful carrots.
I peeled them & cut them into french fry slices.
and then added them to a big mixing bowl.
I added in garlic powder, pepper, salt, and olive oil.
Then I chopped a big bunch of fresh parsley (I grow this on my kitchen windowsill).
just a little shy of ¼ c.
Add it all in the big bowl.
and don’t forget your parmesan cheese! I added ½ c parmesan cheese.
Once it’s all mixed, spread your carrot fries out over a cookie sheet. Heat your oven to 400 and bake for 20 minutes. (Your house will smell like HEAVEN while these are baking).
Once they’re baked, sprinkle some more Parmesan cheese & parsley on top. I promise you… you won’t be able to get enough of these babies! Enjoy!
