Carrot ‘fries’

Sweet potato fries are becoming ubiquitous as a healthier and tastier alternative to standard potato fries, but I have never figured out the trick of making them at home.  It probably has something to do with my refusal to deep fat fry them.  However, I found that using baby carrots makes a quick and easy vegetable side dish that is popular with both my husband and toddler.
