Garlic Carrot Fries

When in doubt about a vegetable I tend to roast it.

Coating it in delicious fat and seasonings and then baking the bejeesus out of it, usually converts even the gnarliest of veggies into something palatable (I’ve a courgette/zucchini in the fridge that’ll get this treatment very soon).

I imagine you could fry these delicious carrots, but it’s so much easier to just pour them onto a baking tray, shove it in the oven and go do something fun like trying to explain the concept of ‘your yard/my yard’ to your neighbour’s dog.

Garlic Carrot Fries (serves 2)

  • 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into thin batons
  • 2 tbsps ghee, butter or bacon fat, melted
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  1. Toss the carrots in the fat until well-coated. Stir in the seasonings and toss again.
  2. Spill onto a greased or lined baking tray and roast at 420 for 20-25 minutes until tender enough to spear with a fork. Serve immediately.
