These simple (non-fried) carrot strips can be made in the oven in just about 20 minutes
If you love the flavor of sweet potato fries, you’ll love the sweet-savory flavor of oven-baked carrot fries. Drizzled with homemade cannabutter and seasoned with salt, pepper, and parmesan, they’re an earthy-salty-sweet snack that doesn’t taste distractingly of marijuana, yet still has positively intoxicating effects.
And best of all? They’re ready when you are. These simple (non-fried) carrot strips can be made in the oven in just about 20 minutes.
Cannabis Carrot Fries
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
2. Peel the carrots, and slice of the tips and ends. Slice each carrot in half, making for two short halves. Slice each half either in half or in quarters, to your desired “fry” size. Try to make the fries as evenly-sized as possible.
3. Place the carrots in a large bowl; drizzle with the cannabutter. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper (be very generous with the salt, in particular) and any other seasonings you’d like. Mix by hand; make sure the carrots are nice and evenly coated.
4. Turn the carrots on to the prepared baking sheet, making sure they lie in a single layer. If any bits of the liquid are still in the bowl, drizzle it on top.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they are crisped to your liking (on the longer side if you like them less-soft on the inside; it’s OK if the edges even have a slight bit of blackening). For extra crispy edges you can turn on the broiler for the last minute or two of cooking; be sure to monitor the mixture carefully as they can progress from perfectly crisp to totally burnt under the broiler if you forget about them! Remove from the oven, and let cool briefly before enjoying warm.
A note on dosage
I “dosed” this recipe with 1 teaspoon of cannabutter per serving (3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon). The strength of your finished product will depend on many factors, including the type of marijuana you used and how you made your cannabutter.
Optimal dosing of cannabis depends on both specific strains and the individual consuming them; questions should be directed to a healthcare professional. Any infused product should be handled with care, stored away from children and pets and clearly marked.
