Spiralized Carrot Fries

While these aren’t your traditional crispy fries, they have that savory fry flavor and are a healthy, veggie-packed way to accompany a meal (like a burger!) you’d normally serve fries with. Ditch the boring raw carrot side and make these curly (spiralized) carrot fries!

Spiralized Carrot Fries

I’m always looking for ways to get creative with vegetables and replicate the same flavors in comfort foods, using vegetables. That’s kind of my niche, right? A big bowl of spaghetti using just zucchini, for instance.

Spiralized Carrot Fries

Here, I’m taking carrots, spiralizing them, tossing them with simple seasonings, and oven baking them so they’re hearty, slightly crunchy, and texturized enough to satisfy those side fry cravings (well, almost!)

Carrots are an underrated vegetable and for so long they just existed as a garnish, in cole slaws, and on crudite platters. But now, they’re getting the credit they deserve, as a hearty side! Yes, carrots can be hearty!

They’re oven baked, so they get slightly crispy and the sweet flavors of the carrots really come out. I served them simply with ketchup!

Spiralized Carrot Fries

This recipe was inspired by my friend Liz Moody’s cookbook, Healthier Together, where she slices carrots and oven bakes them as thick cut fries, serving them with a blackberry ketchup. I loved this recipe so much and wanted to do a similar concept, using spiralized carrots, shoestring style! So, thanks for the inspiration, Liz!

Ingredients

  • 2 large carrots, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the carrot slices in a large zip-top bag, along with the arrowroot powder and salt. Seal the bag and shake so each fry is coated in a thin layer of arrowroot powder. Add the oil to the bag and shake again to coat evenly.
  3. Arrange the fires on the prepared baking sheet in an even layer, spacing them apart. Bake for about 10 minutes until one side starts browning, then flip and cook until golden all over, about 10 minutes more. Turn off the oven, crack the door, season with thyme, and let the carrots cool inside for about 10 minutes. Arrange the fries on a large serving plate.

I normally have great luck with Alli’s recipes but not this one. There was way too much oil for the amount of carrot spirals (I had 200g worth) and they ended up soggy instead of crispy, though the outer carrot fries on the plan completely burned and hardened. I felt like these would have been better with a C blade but it’s hard to find carrots that big.
Meaghan says:
Give it a try on Blade C, Lauren! We'd love to hear what you think. Also, try low and slow and less oil. Your over may be more powerful than the one we used to test!
Nonna Donna says:
I've been sheltered in my home for 6 weeks. I have the carrots. I don't have the arrow root powder or the avocado oil. What can I use? Whole wheat flour? Olive oil?
Meaghan says:
While we haven't tried any of those, we always encourage experimenting! If you do give it a shot please let us know.

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
