A couple of weeks ago, I told you all about the CSA we joined this year. It is our first time participating in Community Supported Agriculture and we just love it!
Every week’s pick up is sort of like Christmas. You don’t know what you’re going to get. There is a level of anticipation because you know you’ll love it either way. It’s so exciting. Yes, I am still talking about vegetables…
We’ve picked up carrots from the farm a few times. It is so adorable how they come with their green tops still attached much like in Bugs Bunny but nothing like in the grocery store.
I like carrots but I needed a new, fresh idea. I didn’t want to just steam them again. I racked my brain for something different. We love sweet potato fries so why not try carrot fries?
So we did! I’ve found that just about any root vegetable is tasty sliced up and roasted in the oven producing healthy “fries”. We did this with kohlrabi earlier in the growing season and loved it too.
To prep the carrots, you need to clean and lightly peel them. Then slice them into 2-3 inch sections.
Brush on some olive oil, salt & a dash of cumin.
Pre-heat your oven at 425 degrees. Then bake the carrots for about 25 minutes.
That’s it! We drizzled ours with a little bit of raw honey. They were delicious and got rave reviews from my food connoisseur husband.
