Chris and I went to Chicago’s Green City Market last Saturday morning where I saw these beautiful purple carrots. Purple carrots! I knew immediately what I was going to make. 101cookbooks Baked Carrot Oven Fries. I changed the aioli dip but other than that followed this easy recipe to make a really tasty side.
A bunch of small fresh farmers market or garden fresh carrots – washed and sliced
Salt and Pepper
After slicing the carrots, spray a cookie sheet with oil and spread the carrots in a single layer. Spray liberally with oil and toss on salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until you see the bottom side of the carrots start to brown. Serve with an aioli dipping sauce. I mixed together 1/4 cup mayo, juice from 1/2 lemon, 1 t. ground cumin, shake of cayenne and turmeric and a little salt.
Notes: A nice roast softened up these carrots and looked really beautiful with the purple skin and the orange on the inside. A really healthy alternative to potato fries as well.
Servings: We ate up all of these carrots! Two side servings.
