Servings 2 people


  • 3-4 large carrots
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • 1 package plant-based cilantro dip*


  • Preheat the oven to 450º F
  • Wash and peel the carrots. Cut into fourths (if a piece is really thick, cut that in half)
  • Spread the carrot slices evenly on lined baking sheet
  • Drizzle the olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne over the carrots and mix
  • Bake for 45 min to 1 hour or until crisp, flipping about every 15-20 min
  • Spread cilantro dip over carrots, and enjoy!


  • If you don’t like spicy foods, omit the cayenne. For just a slight spice, put ½ tsp. If you like and prefer more, I’d say about 1 tsp to 1 ½ tsps is enough
  • I had bought a really yummy cilantro dip at my local Sprouts for $3 and hadn’t yet used it, so that’s why I put it with this recipe. I do have a homemade avocado cilantro sauce that can be used instead here, or if there’s an affordable plant-based dip in your fridge already, that’ll probably taste yummy here as well!
