Here's a healthier alternative to fries that you can make over the campfire or BBQ.

I came across 'carrot fries' on a website somewhere as a healthy alternative to regular fries.

What interested me though was that these look like a good thing to try on a BBQ or Campfire. So we did 🙂

Making Carrot Fries over Campfire or BBQ

What you need:

  • Carrots (obviously)
  • Foil
  • Oil
  • BBQ or Campfire

Making them is really easy:

  • Wash and slice the carrots into the shape of fries.
  • Roll out the foil. Pour a little bit of oil onto the shiny side of the foil, then add some sliced carrots.
  • You may want a little drizzle of oil over the top to make sure the carrots are coated.
  • Fold the foil up into a parcel, then wrap in another layer of foil.
  • Place over hot coals.

3 carrots made enough for two parcels for us.

Cooking time will vary. For us it took around 40 minutes.

Turn and move the parcels often to void the carrots catching.

I recommend checking a parcel after 20 minutes.
