We have talked about carrots and its health benefits already. So, we would directly jump on the mouth-watering recipes now. However, if you are curious about the nutritional benefits of this veggie, you can click here.
Cinnamon Carrot Muffins
These fluffy little muffins are a delight to serve and eat both. They are made from the combination of crunchy nuts and laced with a tinge of cinnamon. The process is very easy. Read below to understand it.
Start the process by rolling 1 cup of assorted nuts in some flour and keep it aside. Now sift 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 Tsp baking soda and 2 Tsp cinnamon. To this add 2 cups(480gms) of brown sugar/jaggery, 1 and a half cups of oil and 4 beaten eggs. Mix all the ingredients well.
After this add 3 cups of carrots and nuts. Now put the batter into the pastry cups (not more than 1/2 full) and bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.
Note: The oven temperature should be maintained at 325F-160C
Healthy Baked Carrot Fries
Eating fries would be a more delightful process if you know that they are low in calories. We will here describe a recipe of fries that you can try without any guilt.
Start the process by preheating oven to 425 degrees.
Now peel and slice carrots (about 900 gms)into french fry shaped pieces (about ½” x ½” x 3”). Toss carrots with olive oil(1Tbsp), salt and pepper. Arrange carrots in a single layer on baking sheet.
After this bake for 10 minutes then flip each carrot fry. Continue to bake until fully cooked and slightly crispy, about an additional 10 minutes. Your carrot french fries are ready!
