COCONUT CARROT FRIES

I’m still on my rutabaga fries kick, but the other day, I didn’t have any rutabagas on hand, and it was snack time – GASP, the horror!!!  I decided not to panic and went to the fridge to see what I could come up with that is “fry-like”.  It was the day before grocery day, so it was slim pickings.  The first thing that jumped out at me was the baby carrots I had – bonus, they are already in a “fry-shape”, so no chopping!  I went onto pinterest to see if there were any ideas for carrot fries.  I came across this pin:

This recipe calls for baked carrot fries with sea salty and parsley.  I was craving different flavors and wanted a sweet and salty type of a snack.  I knew that when you sauté carrots, it brings out their sweet flavor, so I decided to sauté them in extra virgin unrefined coconut oil to add a little coconut flavoring to the sweetness.  To satisfy the salty part, I used fresh dill and sea salt.  I was SO satisfied with the result!

These are a perfect snack or side to a meal that is so easy to make, and is incredibly healthy.
