Makes: 2 servings

Time: 30 Minutes


  • 4 Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 2 Teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 Cup Greek yogurt, plain
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper


For the Carrot Fries:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Trim the ends off the carrots and halve crosswise.  Halve the carrots lengthwise, then cut lengthwise again to create equal-size sticks.  (It may be necessary to cut them lengthwise in thirds to create the desired size).

In a large bowl, toss together the carrots, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, thyme and black pepper.  

Transfer to a baking sheet and spread into a single layer.  Bake, flipping halfway through, until the carrots are cooked through and the edges begin to crisp, 18 to 20 minutes.

To Prepare the Dip:

While carrot sticks are baking, make your Parsley Yogurt Dip by mixing the yogurt, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Combine until smooth and then refrigerate until ready to use.

Serve carrot fries with dip on the side. Enjoy!
