Pesto Roasted Carrot Fries

Serves: 6 - 8 / Simanim: Carrots

Prep time: 8 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes


  • 8 large carrots, peeled
  • ½ cup prepared basil pesto (homemade or store bought)


Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Cut the carrots in half to create two sticks of approximately equal length. Then cut them into fry shapes (I do the narrower half in halves, and the wider half in quarters).

Toss the carrots with the prepared pesto to coat evenly.

Spread the fries in an individual layer on a cookie sheet and bake at 450°F for 40 minutes, turning halfway through.

Serve hot. Enjoy!
