Baked carrot "fries"
1 ½ lbs. carrots
2 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
½ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary, optional
Pinch of ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
2. Cut the ends off carrots, peel and cut in half crosswise. Halve each half lengthwise, then halve lengthwise again for form “fries.” Transfer to a large bowl. Add oil and seasonings; toss to coat.
3. Spread carrots evenly on baking sheet and bake, stirring once, until lightly browned and caramelized, about 20 minutes. (If the carrots haven’t browned yet, cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer, or broil for 2 to 3 minutes, watching carefully so they don’t burn.) Serve hot.
