Carrots is a very good source of beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A that is good for the eyes. Sumac, an ingredient of this cuisine also, has higher antioxidant activities than many common fruits and vegetables, suggesting that sumac might have earned a place on the superfood list. That is the point there, you’ve got an superfood in your ingredients. This is the paleo diet is all about! Plus, it is cooked using the very healthy olive oil, which is a good alternative to dangerous, fatty cooking oils the modern day uses today.

Then, add olive oil, sumac, and salt to a medium bowl.Put the bowl into a preheated oven at 425 F. After that, cook the fries in the bowl for 10 minutes. Next, remove the fries from the bowl and flip them. Next, increase oven heat to 450 and cook for an additional 10 minutes (or until crispy). After that, let carrot fries cool for 10 minutes.
