So Super Baked Carrot French Fries

You know what's better than French fries? Putting carrots in a French fry outfit and tricking yourself into thinking that you're eating French fries.

I learned about this awesome little recipe from Geri's blog, and it looked easy enough. I'm still at a "3-5 ingredients, 3-5 steps" level of recipe proficiency. Watch, one day I'll be slow roasting whole pork shoulders and pickling my own kimchee! But baby steps, people. Anyway, my roomie Louise and I tried baking some carrots other night!

I've decided that musical selection is very important for cooking. For my Boursin chicken, I was cooking to Prince; these carrots were made to Lex Luger instrumentals.

Tyga "Lap Dance"! UHHHHHH!



SO SUPER BAKED CARROT FRENCH FRIES

Ingredients:
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt
6-8 Carrots

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Then...Ree-ree-ree! Sharpen your knife like so.Cut the carrots thinly into 2" sections.
Toss the carrot slices in a bowl with the extra virgin olive oil and salt.
The recipe says to lay the carrots out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I will do that next time, but this time we improvised with a pizza stone baking thingy thing lined with aluminum foil. I KNOW ITS GHETTO, SHUT UP.
Bake for 18-22 minutes, and then pull those suckers out and season with more salt. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or don't. I like my fries plain!
