I was cooking dinner with my sister one night and we had run out of pretty much everything – potatoes and sweet potatoes. So we didn’t know what to have with our fish.

Enter the carrot fries. This is my sisters creation and I still make it all the time! Super simple and tasty!

Carrot fries with yoghurt mint dip

A little sweet, a little spicy, a little salty. The perfect balance for a delicious snack, finished off with an amazing (and simple) yoghurt dipping sauce!
