I love fries. I mean who doesn’t? But I cannot eat fries everyday and try to maintain a healthy lifestyle at the same time, dang it. That is why I came up with these delicious carrot fries! They are crispy, soft fries that are coated in a flavor-filled seasoning, and just like my Zucchini Fries, you won’t remember that you are eating a vegetable. Plus, the whole family will love them!

Why we love this recipe:

  • There’s only 6 ingredients and its very likely you already have them all in your kitchen.
  • Similar to my Honey Glazed Carrots, and Browned Butter Roasted Carrots you throw everything onto a pan, place it in the oven, and voila delicious carrots at your fingertips.
  • They are a healthy alternative to French fries.

Recipe Ingredients

Carrot fry ingredients

Carrots have a natural sweetness to them, especially when they are cooked. This makes a good base for the fries.

Paprika is one of the heroes in this recipe. The smoky mild flavor is both rich and savory and really amps up these fries.

Parsley is one of those ingredients that can be very underrated. A lot of times you see parsley as a pretty topping for a dish, but in reality it is a clean and crisp earthy flavor that adds brightness to any recipe.

FAQs

Can I use baby carrots for these carrot fries?

If baby carrots are all you have on hand then you definitely can use them. However I would strongly encourage using larger carrots since the carrots will shrink when baking.

What are good dipping sauces for carrot fries?

Honestly you can’t go wrong here! Any dip would be delicious with this healthy snack. Some I would recommend would be ranch, ketchup, mayo, my Avocado Dressing or any other dipping sauce!

How to Make Carrot Fries

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a small bowl mix together the parsley, paprika, salt and pepper.

Storage and Reheating

You can store these carrot fries in an airtight container in your fridge for 2-3 days.

Similar to reheated French fries, reheated carrot fries lose that crispiness they had when they were fresh, so be mindful of this. To reheat, you can do so in your oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes. You can also reheat in an air fryer at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 3-5 minutes. You can also reheat in the microwave until everything has warmed through.
