Spicy Carrot Sticks

I have always been a fan of roasting any vegetable to caramelize its natural sugars. This fantastic side dish goes a step further by adding a spicy kick that makes these carrots addictive.

6 large carrots, peeled, ends trimmed

1 egg white from a large egg

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon water

1½ teaspoons garlic powder

1½ teaspoons ground cumin

1½ teaspoons sugar

½ teaspoon paprika

¼ teaspoon ground white pepper

1 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt

1. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Cover a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. Cut each carrot in half to make 2 (3–4 inch) pieces.

3. Cut each carrot half in half lengthwise. With the cut-side down on the cutting board, cut each half into 3 equal strips.

4. Place the egg white into a large shallow bowl or container and whip with a fork or whisk till foamy.

5. In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, water, garlic powder, cumin, sugar,paprika, and white pepper.

6. Place the carrot sticks into the beaten egg; toss the egg white.

7. Stir the carrots into the spice mixture. Arrange in a single layer on a prepared pan. Sprinkle with the salt.

8. Roast, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

9. Transfer to a serving plate or bowl.
