Baked Carrot Fries With Vegan Sriracha Mayonnaise

3. Baked Carrot Fries With Vegan Sriracha Mayonnaise

Baked Carrot Fries with Sriracha mayonnaise makes a great gluten-free appetizer or side for your meal. Served with spicy sriracha mayonnaise, these baked carrot fries are full of flavour! A delicious and easy way to get veggies onto your and your kids' plates and love them, too. Gluten-free and dairy-free with a vegan option.

Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Total time: 35 minutes | Servings: 4

Ingredients For The Carrot Fries

  • Carrots: 4 large, cut lengthwiselengthwise
  • Extra virgin olive oil: 2 tablespoons
  • Paprika: 1 tablespoon
  • Onion powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Vegan parmesan cheese: 1 tablespoon, grated (optional)
  • Black pepper: 1 teaspoon or to taste
  • Sea salt: 1-2 teaspoons or to taste

Ingredients For The Sriracha Mayonnaise

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Set aside a big sheet pan lined with foil.
  2. Carrots should be washed, peeled, and the ends removed. Carrots should be cut and sliced in the centre (lengthwise). You can obtain 3-4 carrot fries from each half, depending on the size of your carrots.
  3. Place carrot fries on a large baking sheet. Toss in the oil, paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper using your hands to cover the carrots evenly. You may add parmesan cheese at this step if desired.
  4. Arrange carrot fries on a sheet pan in an overlapping pattern. Use a second baking sheet if your first one is too crowded.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating halfway through.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the sriracha ingredients. Take a handful of parsley and chop it up (or cilantro).
  7. Garnish with either fresh parsley or cilantro and serve with sriracha mayo sauce once the carrots are soft.

 Recipe Notes

  • You want to ensure you cut your fries in the same shape and size, so they cook evenly.
  • Smaller is better in this case. Cut your carrot fries to be about ¼-inch in width maximum. They'll bake up and crisp better that way. Cut them larger, and you'll end up with roasted carrots instead of fries.
  • It is best to peel your carrots unless you use young organic ones. Let them dry completely before proceeding with the recipe.
  • Evenly distribute your carrot fries, ensuring that you leave some spaces so they will become crispy.
  • For this recipe, avocado oil is best because it has a high smoking point. In my opinion, avocado oil is the best. It is our favourite oil to cook with. It's versatile and doesn't have a strong taste like some of the other oils.

Carrot Fries With A Vegan Ketchup-Ranch Dip

4. Carrot Fries With A Vegan Ketchup-Ranch Dip

This is another delicious carrot fries recipe. This time we serve it with a vegan ketchup-ranch dip.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 30- 35 minutes | Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • Carrots: 4
  • Extra virgin olive oil: 2 tablespoons
  • Black pepper: 2 teaspoons, freshly ground
  • Garlic powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Sea salt (or kosher salt): 1 teaspoon
  • Fresh thyme: 1 teaspoon, finely chopped
  • Vegan ketchup: ½ cup
  • Vegan ranch dressing: ½ cup

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Trim the carrots' ends and cut them in half crosswise. Cut the carrots in halves lengthwise, then in half or thirds lengthwise, depending on the size, to make equally size sticks.
  3. Combine the carrots, olive oil, pepper, garlic powder, salt, and thyme in a mixing bowl. Spread the carrot mixture out onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, turning halfway through until the carrots are soft and the edges begin to crisp.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup-ranch dressing. Serve the ketchup ranch beside the carrot fries.

Easy Baked Carrot Fries Recipe

9. Easy Baked Carrot Fries Recipe (Paleo, Vegan, AIP)

These baked carrot fries are tasty, nutritious, and fun to make. These carrot fries are easy and quick to make and only use a few ingredients.

Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 35 minutes | Servings 3

Ingredients

  • Carrots: 1 pound (about 10 medium carrots)
  • Tapioca flour: 2 tablespoons
  • Avocado oil: 2 tablespoons
  • Sea salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Black pepper: ½ teaspoon, freshly ground
  • Garlic powder: ½ teaspoon
  • Onion powder: ½ teaspoon
  • Thyme: ½ teaspoon

 Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Wash and peel the carrots and cut them into sticks, roughly 4 inches long and about ½ inch wide.
  3. Add the cut carrots to a bowl and sprinkle them with the tapioca flour and all the spices. Mix everything until the spice and flour mixture coats all the carrot sticks.
  4. Drizzle the avocado oil over the carrots and stir to coat evenly.
  5. Distribute the coated carrot fries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Ensure that you spread the carrots evenly and in a single layer.
  6. Put the carrot fries into the preheated oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes, checking halfway through to move them around or flip them on the sheet to get them evenly cooked.
  7. The carrot fries are ready to eat; once you can pierce them easily with the fork and slight browning/crisping on the edges, they are done. Remove the carrot fries from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes.

 Recipe Notes

  • I find that the carrot fries have a better texture peeled.
  • I use tapioca flour in this recipe, so the carrot fries are firmer and crispier.
  • To follow the autoimmune protocol, omit the black pepper to make it AIP-compliant.
  • Ensure that the carrot fries are evenly distributed onto a baking sheet in a single layer. This allows the carrot fries to cook evenly.
  • These carrot fries taste the best with a firm texture right out of the oven. You can store the freshly made carrot fries for a few days in the fridge. However, they will lose their crispness, but the flavour will still be good.

Ingredients For The Spicy Carrot Fries

  • Carrots: 1½ lbs (705 g), cut into “fries”
  • Avocado oil: 1 tablespoon (15 g)
  • Dried parsley: 2 teaspoons (I prefer fresh parsley, chopped 2 tablespoons)

  • Onion powder: ½ teaspoon
  • Paprika: 1 teaspoon
  • Cumin: 1 teaspoon
  • Chipotle chilli powder: ½ teaspoon

Method

Toss the carrot fries well and roast them for 15 minutes or until tender. I like to broil the carrot fries for 3-5 minutes to try and give them a little more colour.
  3. In a small glass container, combine all the ingredients for the lemon cumin yogurt sauce and mix it well.
  4. Remove the carrot fries from the oven and transfer them to a dish. Sprinkle them with fresh parsley and serve with the homemade lemon cumin yogurt sauce.
