Loaded Carrot Fries
Who knew carrot sticks could look so naughty?
Put your calorie counter away … we bring you Loaded (carrot) Fries, less the carbs and the fat.
Everyone in your family will love our super speedy Just Veg. Loaded Fries - just don’t tell them they’re healthy!
This dish is perfect for lunch, afternoon munchies, dinner - anytime you fancy a fast, fresh, filling veggie fix.
Our friend and recipe creator, Melanie Lionello, includes a great homemade guacamole, but if you’re seriously pushed for time just swap in a store-bought guac.
We get it, you do whatever it takes to keep the troops happy and fed!
You can also swap in Greek Yoghurt for the sour cream, nuts and seeds for the bacon.
We love some kitchen free styling.
Grab a few packets of our Just Veg. carrot sticks from Woolworths (look out for them in the ready-to-eat salad section) because we reckon one serve won’t be enough.
For flavour that really packs a punch, shake your sticks in the Cajun seasoning before you bake them.
So to recap - this is an easy, fast way to get that fried chip flavour without the fat or the carbs.
AND you’re helping us reduce food waste because we produce the Just Veg. carrot sticks with our wonky but tasty carrots.
All hail the loaded carrot fries.
