Although I am from a town that claims to be the BBQ capital of the world, I am not a huge fan of pulled pork barbecue sandwiches.  However, I found myself in the mood for some extra-flavorful veggies today, and these BBQ “fries” hit the spot.  The tangy BBQ flavor mixed nicely with the sweet carrots to create a simple mid-afternoon snack.

The recipe below is for a single serving, but it could easily be multiplied to be served as a side-dish.  Also, most people would probably prefer a stronger BBQ flavor; feel free to add more BBQ sauce!

BBQ Carrot Fries

Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/4 tsp. BBQ Sauce (or more)
  • 1/8 tsp. chives
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice carrots into 3-inch by 1/4-inch fries.
  • In a plastic bag, combine all ingredients. Shake well so that the carrots are well coated.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and arrange carrots in a single layer on the pan.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until tender.
  • Eat and enjoy!
