These Parmesan carrot shoestring fries area crunchy, cheesy healthy alternative snack.
I’m always looking for something healthy to snack on. It’s so easy to just grab a bag of chips when you’re craving something crunchy. But when you’re trying to be good and trying to lose weight chips are the last thing you need to eat.
I absolutely love cheese. Anything with cheese I’m in. That’s why these Parmesan carrot shoestrings fries have the perfect about of cheese to curve over your cheese craving.
These fries are so simple to make. In the produce section at your grocery store you can usually find carrots in a variety of sizes and cuts. For this recipe you want to buy a bag of julienne cut carrots. This way you can totally skip the tedious task of cutting up the carrots.
When you open your bag of carrots you want to lay them out on some paper towels and dry off any condensation that might have produced from sitting in the refrigerator. Next throw them in a mixing bowl.
I used canola oil for this recipe, but you can used olive oil if you prefer. Add your oil and Parmesan cheese in a smaller bowl and whisk together. Then pour over your carrots and mix well.
Lay out your carrots on a larger baking pan and pop in the over. I suggest flipping the carrots a few times when cooking so you get an even cook. I like to taste test to figure out what is the desired crunchiness before determine when they are done.
Just like that you now have a healthy snack to enjoy.

For those of us who would just as soon start with whole carrots, how many oz in the “bag of julienne cut carrots”? Thanks!
Sorry I just saw this. It was a 10oz bag
Are the carrots called “Shoestring” carrots on the bag? The carrots in the pic look too small to be julienne, but maybe they shrink? Also, what about olive oil, would that work? Thanks! ❤️
This looks so good! What a great after school snack for kids!
Yeah the cheese the kids should love
Thanks for sharing! Do they reheat well?
I would say no. I have never tried but I just don’t think they would.

37g of fat? Where does that come from?
It has to be the oil. Oil is fattening
So easy! Perfect for a quick, healthy snack or side.
So glad they turned out good for you Jane

I did this in the air fryer and used sprite oil. Cut the cheese back and half at about 100 cal a serving
