Air Fryer Carrots

These air fryer carrots are hands down the best carrots I have ever made. Raw carrots are seasoned and air fried, then topped with a sprinkle of parmesan and fresh herbs.

Equipment

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Pre heat your air fryer to 355 °F / 180 °C. Depending on the make and model of your air fryer, it usually takes 3-5 minutes to heat up.
  • Peel your carrots, and chop them in half or quarters to form carrot batons or sticks the size of thick carrot fries.
  • Place the carrot sticks in a bowl, and add the olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to coat the carrots evenly.
  • Add the carrots to your air fryer. To ensure that they cook evenly, you should place them in a single layer without too much overlap. If you’re air frying a large amount, you might want to do it in multiple batches.
  • Air fry the carrots for 15-20 minutes, or until the carrots are soft enough to pierce with a fork while getting a slightly darker color on the edges. Shake the air fryer basket once or twice while they are frying.
  • Remove the carrots from the basket, and top them with shredded parmesan and finely chopped parsley.

Notes

Leftovers

Leftover roasted carrots can be stored in an airtight container in a refrigerator for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that the leftover carrots tend to be less crispy and more soft, but they are still perfectly fine to eat!

Alternative seasoning

Honey glazed: Use ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon garlic powder and 1 tablespoon honey. This will create a sweet, sticky glaze. I recommend placing the carrots in a bowl in the air fryer to prevent the honey from dripping off the carrots while it’s cooking.
Cinnamon sugar: Use 1 teaspoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. These carrots will be very sweet. Again, I recommend placing the carrots in a bowl in the air fryer to prevent the honey from dripping off the carrots while it’s cooking.
Herbs: Add ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon basil ½ teaspoon parsley and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. This version will be great with Mediterranean flavors.
