Air Fried Roasted Carrots – One of my favorite things to make in an airfryer is vegetables. I always find myself thinking of a healthy side dish as an after thought when dinner is already in the oven.

I end up microwaving frozen vegetables then having to throw away fresh ones when they go bad.

That’s no longer a problem with an air fryer, especially with these air fried carrots. Roasting vegetables take half the time and taste just as delicious!

Cooking in an air fryer can be intimidating. Here are the main mistakes most air fryer users make.

Roasting carrots is a perfect quick side dish to any meal. It creates a healthy alternative to carbs and complements almost any dinner.

Did you know one carrot only has 25 calories? There’s also very low prep involved! That’s a win win for everyone!

We paired our Air Fried Roasted Carrots with a Beefless Tips Stroganoff. The flavors meshed together perfectly. There was no need for additional carbs, like bread, to go along with the meal.

How to Cook Carrots in an AirFryer and Actifry

First peel your carrots and cut the tops off. I recommend using a Y Peeler to make peeling easier. They’re so cheap, but useful! I cut mine into 2 inch chunks. You may need to cut some in half so they are all a similar size.

This is important to ensure each piece cooks at the same speed. Otherwise some carrots will end up mushy while some still aren’t cooked all the way through.

Preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees for about 1-2 minutes. This is not mandatory, but I like to heat it up while tossing my food in a little oil. It doesn’t take long to get the heat up in an air fryer, so why not preheat it like an oven?

While the air fryer is preheating, toss the cut carrots in about 1 tsp. oil and toss to coat.*

Place the carrots in the air fryer basket and close. Cook carrots for 15-18 minutes until tender. You should be able to glide a fork through the carrot with ease. I recommend shaking the basket every few minutes.

Season with salt and pepper with 1-2 minutes left and shake the carrots in the basket to coat. I have found seasoning toward the end of roasting in the air fryer has helped bring out a lot of flavor.

All the shaking can cause the flavors to fall off, especially if you are not using any oil.

*Oil can be omitted from the recipe if you prefer an oil, but the carrots will be drier

Serve warm and immediately. Enjoy!
