And More Carrots!

This is a favorite vegetable at Audrey's house. The girls usually eat them raw with peanut butter or ranch. When I found a recipe for Carrot Fries I thought it sounded great. And it turns out it is. The carrots turn out well cooked and a little on the crisp side. Calling them fries made them an easier sell with Audrey (Mo went to bed early because she is teething).

  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • pinch of pepper
Preheat oven to 425°F. Scrub or peel carrots. Remove both tips. Cut carrots in half crosswise, then lengthwise, and lengthwise again. Place carrots and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Toss coat. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Audrey, Chloe and Mo's Tasks:
  1. Help measure and add ingredients
  2. Stir carrots
  3. Spread out on baking sheets
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Scrub and cut carrots
  2. Bake
These were very good. Make sure to cut your carrots in a uniform shape or the smaller ones will burn before the others are done.

Place in a bowl to coat.

Watch cousin Chloe stir.

Pour onto baking sheet.
