I love carrots. I used to hate them.

I also love sweet potatoes. I also used to hate them.

I also love both of them most with either hummus or peanut butter. Ahh, easily one of my favourite snacks.

Of course, both of these orange veggies are delicious when fried and seasoned. And I have an easy recipe to fry them up that will impress you and your friends. Serve them with garlicky hummus, peanut sauce, or chipotle mayo for dipping!

Carrot or Sweet Potato Fries


1 large carrot, peeled cut into thin matchstick slices (or 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into matchstick slices)

2 tsps sugar

1 tsp salt

Grapeseed oil


1. Coat your orange veg in sugar and salt.

2. Pour oil about 2 inches deep into a frying pan. Heat over high heat, until oil just starts to simmer; reduce to medium. Fry carrots or potato slices in batches. Keep in pan until slices rise to the top of the oil; remove from pan with slotted spoon.

3. Serve hot with dipping sauce of choice and enjoy!

Welcome! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to own a blog, and I created this one to inspire others and help myself. I am a passionate twenty something-year old woman with a love of cooking, tap dancing, and meeting new people-- and of course, primarily an intention to die to my human self and seek God with my whole being. I will eat anything with peanut butter and love spontaneity. I aim to live life in submission to what Christ has for me. I'm currently studying Christian Theology and English at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada.
