Recipe

One of my favorite ways to make healthier fries is with carrots or parsnips. The texture is pretty close to potatoes and they have just enough sweetness to make them appealing to kids and adults alike. While I often make them simply with salt and pepper, lately I have been loving the addition of fresh rosemary, garlic, and cumin. It's a delicious side dish that goes great with almost anything. Depending on what you have on hand you can make this with fresh or dried rosemary, just use about half as much for dried.  You can also use thyme, oregano, or marjoram instead. Additionally since it is can hard to cut carrots into matchsticks, you can also make chips by cutting the carrots into thin rounds.
