Thank you for sharing this recipe. Since accidentally ordering 5 kilo of carrots from Tesco, this has become our favorite dish. I can't wait to serve it to my chip-obsessed mum-in-law for her opinion.

These are wonderful, quick and easy to make, and incredibly moreish. I served these as a side dish alongside the Harissa Chicken and Tomatoes recipe. Will certainly be making these again.

These are quite good. The carrots held their shape well and didn't fall apart or get all mushy as they do in other recipes. I didn't have any tarragon so used oregano instead. I have already passed the recipe along to a friend who also tried it and liked it very much.

Amazing recipe! Great alternative to chips - just as good if not better! I didn't use tarragon as I didn't have any in, but they tasted fab without. Really easy recipe, definitely recommend :-)
