The secret ingredient to crispy carrot (or sweet potato fries) is a little bit of organic corn starch! Too much and they will be pasty, too little and they won't get as crispy. My favorite way to eat these is with a little ketchup mixed with sriracha (a 4:1 ratio.) You can just buy a pre-made Cajun seasoning at the store (easy), or make your own by combining the spices listed.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Place carrots in a large bowl; add cornstarch and toss, using your hands, until evenly coated. Sprinkle coconut sugar, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, oregano, and thyme over carrots. Drizzle olive oil over seasoned carrots and toss to coat. Spread carrots onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes; flip and continue baking until lightly browned and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Eat them right away, they soften after too long out of the oven. Be warned, you will be done in 3 minutes flat, you might want to make a double batch, they are so addictive!

Cajun Rainbow Carrot Fries Haiku: "Color me surprised. Carrots blah, but these? They're great. Fun & flavorful." Rather than measuring out all of the spices indicated by the recipe, I took the cook's suggestion in the description and used a Creole seasoning blend (from an AR recipe that I keep well-stocked in hinged glass jars from the craft store, fill with spice blends, and give as gifts.) This was a big time-saver for what turned out to be a side-dish success, and even moreso because my picky toddler clamored for all of the purple "fwiez." Read More
