Crispy Carrot Fries

by Sally Sampson

IN THE MOOD FOR FRIES? Instead of the French kind, try these. Carrots are tasty and super-good for you.


  • 6 carrots (about 1 pound), well scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1 tsp. olive or canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

With the help of an adult, turn the oven on and set it to 400° F.

Put the carrots on the cutting board and, with the help of an adult, cut them in thirds. Cut the thinnest end into 2 spears. Cut the two thicker parts into 4 spears each so that you get 10 carrot spears from each carrot.

Put the spears on the baking sheet, add the oil and salt and, using your clean hands, rub the oil and salt on the carrot pieces until they’re all lightly coated with oil.

Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the carrots are tender and golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Serve right away.
