Parmesan Carrot Fries



Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 pound of fresh carrots

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 cloves minced garlic

  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon of paprika

  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon of chili powder

  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon of onion powder

  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon of your favorite Italian seasoning

  • Dash of salt


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice your carrots into pieces/sections about 3 inches or so long. Then cut those in half so there’s a flat side to each piece.
  • In a bowl, mix together your olive oil, garlic, only 1/4 cup of your parmesan cheese, all your spices, and salt. Once combined, throw in those carrots and toss them around, coating them all.
  • Put your remaining parmesan cheese in a separate little bowl or dish. Dip the flat side of your carrots into that parmesan. Put each carrot, with the cheese down, onto your baking sheet. Space them out a little bit.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the carrot fries are tender. Time may vary depending on the size of your carrot slices.
  • Serve and enjoy! Really delicious with tzatziki sauce, ranch, whatever little dip you’d like!
