Crispy, sweet, baked to perfection- try rosemary beet fries via @holleygraingerClick To Tweet

I’m a lover of fries. There, I said it. My name is Hannah Claire and I am a fry addict.

Idaho potato, sweet potato, zucchini, squash, eggplant, carrot – if you give me any veggie that is cut into a shape that resembles a dip-able french fry, I will eat it. All of it. Fried or baked, I will not discriminate.

I was perusing the produce at the grocery store, and I happened upon some gorgeous multi-colored beets. So naturally I bought them. Who doesn’t love pretty, in-season produce? When I got home I encountered a dilemma- how do I prepare these gorgeous beets? Beets have a sweet and earthy flavor profile, and their texture is a mix between a red potato and a carrot.

It dawned on me – I could have my favorite drug of choice. Fries. Made even better with beets. Crunchy strips of sweet and earthy beets, baked to crisp perfection. So I cut my beets into strips and tossed them in olive oil. The trick to getting these super crispy is to spread them out enough so that they are not overlapping. A convection oven is also a miracle-worker when it comes to giving baked fries crispy edges and a soft center.

The results were absolutely delicious. I ate every last one of them and was not one bit sorry. I suggest dipping them in honey mustard or just eating them plain. Like my post? Connect with me on instagram via @eatyoursweets!
