Moroccan Carrot Fries with Parsley Aioli and Feta Dip

It has been about a month since my last post. Holy smokes, life has been busy! I walked in my graduate school graduation, had a celebration with family and friends, and simultaneously, work at the Poison Control Center started getting more intense. Busy, busy. But, now I am back to blogging and bringing you these delicious Moroccan Carrot Fries with Parsley Aioli and Feta Dip! Moroccan Carrot Fries with Parsley Aioli and Feta Dip

You know, usually I am not a fan of cooked carrots. In fact, I never eat them. Maple glazed carrots? Nope, I’ll pass. But these babies, these are something else. They are absolutely addicting! I forget I’m even eating cooked carrots because they don’t taste like it.  Moroccan Carrot Fries with Parsley Aioli and Feta Dip

And the sauces? The sauces are everything. They make this dish so freaking good.Both sauces are very simple to make and only take a couple minutes each. The Parsley Aioli includes the herb itself, mayonnaise, garlic paste, and lemon juice. I have made homemade aioli in the past but I decided to take the easy route and just mix mayonnaise with garlic. But please feel to make your own!

Where as, the Feta Dip is a much healthier and lighter cheese dip that includes Greek yogurt for its creamy base instead of sour cream.
