Air Fryer Carrots Recipe

Contributor: Christine Pittman

The air fryer is a wonderful tool for roasting vegetables quickly. One of my favorites to cook in there is carrots. They come out soft right through, and lightly caramelized on the outside, in just 10 minutes. Isn’t that crazy?

  • Prep Time: 1 Minute
  • Cook Time: 10 Minutes
  • Total Time: 11 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


  • 1 lb. baby carrots
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper


  1. Start air fryer preheating to 400°F. Blot the carrots with paper towel so they’re not damp.
  2. Put the carrots into a medium-sized bowl. Add the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.
  3. Put carrots into air fryer even if it isn’t fully preheated. Toss so they’re in a single layer in the basket.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes. At this point they will be softened all the way through and slightly browned. You can eat them now. Or put them in for another 5 minutes to get them even softer and browner.
  5. Remove carrots from air fryer basket.
