Carrot Frites

Last week at a event I worked, the chef had yummy fried carrot strips garnishing his monk fish.And then the other day I saw veggie chips in Whole Foods with strips of carrots. So at the produce market today I saw some big fat carrots and decided to give it a try. I took out my mandolin that just sits in the corner gathering dust, and sliced the carrots paper thin. I then fried away and then sprinkled with Kosher salt. What I got was a nice sweet veggie chip, reminiscent of a sweet potato ,that wasn't covered in batter like a lot of fried veggies. But like when I make homemade potato chips, some turn out really crispy and some don't. I learned a while back to soak my potatoes in cold water to release the starch and get them to fry up crispy. Maybe I'll try this next time. But a nice healthy junk food snack.

I have never tried fried carrots before. I have had many other veggies fried, but not these. They sound really yummy!
