RECIPE: Carrot Fries

Here's a simple Paleo recipe that I love. One of my Instagram friends, Lael, introduced me to the awesomeness of carrot fries. They've become my favorite side when we eat those All-American staples like hamburgers (bunless, of course).

You can change up the seasoning for a different flavor, so don't be afraid to experiment!  This is such a simple recipe, even those who are challenged in the kitchen can whip up a batch with ease!

Here's what you'll need:

-Large Carrots (I think we used 8-10 carrots)
-Oil of your choice (we use olive oil or coconut oil)
-Seasonings:  This time we used Salt and Steak Seasoning, but I've also used Cinnamon and then lightly drizzled them honey or maple syrup.  If you're doing the Whole30, skip the sweet stuff!

1. Preheat the oven to 400F
2. Wash and peel your carrots, then begin slicing them into fries.  The top of the carrots, which are wider, can normally be cut into forths. The bottoms I just cut into half.  It depends on the size of your carrots and how big you want your fries.
3.  Place your carrot fries into a bowl and drizzle with a couple tablespoons of oil.  Sprinkle with seasonings as well, and then toss the carrots so they are well coated.
4. Lay seasoned carrot fries onto a pan in a single layer.  Bake for 25-35 minutes.  (Time will depend on how fat your fries are.)  You may want to turn them halfway through.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Don't forget to check out Lael's blog.  I love this printable she shared on her blog last month which helps with metric conversions, shows you what cut of meat comes from where, suggests cooking times for foods, boasts of food storage tips, and looks super cute!
