Oven Baked Carrot Fries

Oven Baked Carrot Fries

As a parent of a Autistic child, getting my kid to eat a "balanced meal" is a real challenge.  I feel like I am jumping through hoops every day, especially during this time of the season when everybody is sick.  I hide veggies in everything.  From burgers to muffins.  So when she gobbled down two plates of these, I fell off my chair,  and then thought it might be worth posting the simple recipe!  I hope your "picky little eater" enjoys as much as mine did.

Oven Baked Carrot Fries:
oven 425

4 large  Carrots
1 TB  Olive Oil or Canola Oil
1 tsp  Sea Salt

Peel and cut carrots into "fries".   Place in small bowl and toss with olive oil and sea salt.  Once coated, place on parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, then flip and bake for another 15 minutes.  

*These don't crisp-up like a regular french fry, they are soft like a sweet potato fry.
