Crispy Carrot Fries

Carrots are awesome. They’re delicious eaten raw dipped in hummus, or lightly boiled and drizzled with honey or…sliced like fries and roasted! I went through a phase in my life were a ate carrots every single day, maybe even more than once. I love them that much.

While I no longer feel compelled to munch on these beta-carotene loaded veggies everyday, I still have my carrot-cravings. I knew when I bought my last bunch that I wanted to slice them up and roast them. It’s my new favorite way to enjoy carrots!

These are best served (in my opinion) with mashed avocado for dipping. It just doesn’t get any better than that. After admiring my carrots fresh out of the oven I topped mine with morrocan spiced lentils, sauteed zucchini and spinach, and (of course) mashed avocado with lime and red pepper flakes. Enjoyed outside accompanied by my cat…
