Heart Healthy Roasted Carrot Fries
Taste of Home has a great way to get the kids to eat their carrots, make them FRIES!!! But, that’s just their shape. They are healthy because they are roasted in Olive Oil. I sprinkled a little cinnamon and sugar on as I pulled them hot out of the oven. Super easy and unique way to serve carrots!
•1 pound fresh carrots, cut into 1/2-inch sticks
