How to make carrot fries; baked or air-fried. This low-carb side dish or snack is a delicious and nutritious replacement for potato fries, uses just a few simple ingredients, and is ready in under 40 minutes!
Watch the video in the post for visual instructions.Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Peel the carrots and slice them into sticks, about 1 1/2 cm thick. I used a crinkle-cut knife, but you can use a regular knife.
Add the carrot sticks to a large bowl along with all the remaining ingredients and toss to combine and coat the carrots well. Then, transfer them to the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes, flipping halfway. However, I recommend checking on them at 25 minutes as the size/thickness of the sticks and your particular oven may mean they take slightly less or longer (40 mins).
You can optionally sprinkle the baked fries with fresh herbs like parsley. Enjoy with this Yum Yum Sauce!
Cornstarch: You can use arrowroot flour instead. Potato starch or tapioca flour will probably work too.
Spices: Feel free to add more spices like onion powder or use cayenne pepper for some heat. You can also sprinkle the baked fries with this homemade vegan Parmesan cheese.
For Air fryer carrots: Air fry at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) for 15-20 minutes, shaking halfway through. The Air fryer carrot fries are crispier than the oven-baked fries.
