Lately, I have been on a major 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 was craving a sweet and salty type of a flavor. 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.
