Roasted Carrot Sticks

If you want a healthy, 0 Points alternative to french fries, or roasted potatoes, these Roasted Carrot Sticks are a fantastic option. They are so simple to prepare, yet are very flavorful and savory. Roasting the carrots bring out a wonderful new taste, and helps get rid of the some of the sweetness of the carrot. It ends up having more of a potato-like flavor. I roasted mine using salt, pepper and cumin, but you can experiment with this and use any seasonings you’d like. Also, this is the ONLY way I can get my 4 year old to eat a carrot. So that alone is a huge plus in my book! These roasted carrots are a lovely and delightful low calorie side dish recipe that will give you a great way to get in that all important veggie serving for 0 Points. Enjoy!
