If you like the flavor of sweet potato fries, you’ll love the sweet-salty flavor of baked carrot fries. Drizzled with homemade canned butter and seasoned with salt, pepper, and Parmesan, they are a sweet-salty-earthy snack that doesn’t taste like marijuana but has positive intoxicating effects.
And best of all? They’re ready when you are. These simple carrot strips (not fried) can be prepared in the oven in only about 20 minutes.
2-3 medium carrots, or 5-6 small carrots
2 tablespoons of cannabutter (you can also use vegan cane butter made with coconut oil)
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Salt, pepper, and seasonings to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with baking paper.
2. Peel the carrots and slice the tops and ends. Cut each carrot in half, making two short halves. Slice each half in half or quarters to the desired size for frying. Try to make fries as uniform in size as possible.
3. Place carrots in a large bowl; drizzle with can butter. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper (be very generous with the salt, especially) and any other seasoning you desire. Mix by hand; make sure carrots are well coated and evenly distributed.
4. Turn the carrots over on the prepared baking sheet, making sure that they rest in a single layer. If any liquid remains in the bowl, drizzle over top.
5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp to your liking (on the longer side if you like them less soft inside; it doesn’t matter if the edges are even a little blackened). For even crispier edges, you can turn on the grill during the last minute or two of cooking; be sure to watch the mixture carefully as it can go from perfectly crispy to totally burnt under the grill if you forget! Remove from the oven and allow to cool briefly before eating hot.
A note on dosage
I “dosed” this recipe with 1 teaspoon of can butter per serving (3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon). The strength of your finished product will depend on several factors, including the type of marijuana you used and how you made your cannabutter.
