Delicious baby food recipe: easy to cook carrot fries

These easy baked carrot fries are my favorite kind of vegetable side dish: they’re easy to make – you just need to slice them – they cook in just about 20 minutes, and there’s no need to stir them or stretch them. Oh, and they’re totally delicious.

Older babies and toddlers tend to like roasted vegetables because their natural sugars caramelize in the oven, giving them a slightly sweet flavor.

Plus, they’re easy for little hands to hold and have a soft texture that new eaters will appreciate. We love them dipped in ketchup, of course, but they’re also quite delicious on their own. They don’t always get crispy like real fries, but that never seemed to matter with my toddler.

Easy Baked Carrot Fries


  • 6 to 8 medium carrots, cut into matchstick-sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 1. Place sliced ​​carrots on a large rimmed baking sheet and toss with olive oil and salt. Spread them out as evenly as possible (this will help them get a little crispy in spots, which will make them really delicious). 3. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes or until beginning to brown and tender. 4. Serve with your favorite dip. Variations: Add a pinch of cinnamon or cumin to add more flavor. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of honey (if your child is over 1 year old) before roasting to add extra sweetness. Use rainbow carrots for more color. Notes: Cooking time will depend on the thickness of your slices, so try to ensure they are cut as evenly as possible to prevent some from becoming too dark before others are cooked. For 3-4 people
