Carrot Fries Are The New Sweet Potato Fries

As fall swiftly approaches (I know, huge bummer), we say goodbye to juicy tomatoes and sweet peaches and enter root vegetable season! Beets, sweet potatoes and parsnips spring up, perfect for hearty soups and roasted sides that pair nicely with your coziest turtleneck.

One of my favorites of the fall harvest is carrots. Great cooked or raw, they’re sweet, crunchy, and totally irresistible. Roasted, they’re reminiscent of sweet potatoes, which makes them the perfect candidate for oven fries!

Tossed with a healthy glug of olive oil and seasoned with cumin and paprika, they have the perfect hint of spice. (Kind of reminded me of curly fry seasoning, tbh!) We roast them extra long and at a nice high heat (425, to be exact), until the ends are a little burnt. Gotta give them that classic fry crunch. No limp carrots here!

What really sets these fries apart from the rest is their dipping sauce. It’s creamy, spicy and citrusy, and you’re going to want to dip everything in it. There’s smoky chipotles straight from the can, lime juice, and mayo. So easy we can’t believe we didn’t think of it sooner!
