WHAT TO DO:

 

STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 180 degrees

STEP 2: Cut the carrots in half (lengthways) and then roughly in quarters so they are the shape of fries.

STEP 3: Make sure the sticks are as similar as possible in width and length. This ensures they cook evenly, and if you have really small carrots, you can roast them whole.

STEP 4: Lay down some baking paper and toss them with enough vegetable oil to lightly coat the carrots.

STEP 5: Add your salt and pepper to taste.

STEP 6: Roast for about 20-25 minutes, turning them once or twice through the duration.
