What Ingredients Are Needed to Make Air Fryer Garlic Roasted Carrots?
Carrots- You will need 2 big-size carrots and 4 medium-size carrots to serve 4 people.
Olive Oil- Any good quality olive oil works well here. Melted butter is good for substitution. Avocado oil works well too.
Garlic- Fresh minced garlic provides a perfect depth of flavor.
Paprika- For a slight kick; it balances the sweetness of the carrot. I use cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes as a substitution.
Salt- Pinch of salt is needed.
How to Make Them-
Wash and peel the carrots. Then, cut them into your desired shapes.
Make a marinade of olive oil, paprika, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt. Mix carrots with the marinade.
Roast them in the air fryer at 400 F for 10-12 minutes. After 6 minutes, you should check on them and if needed, turn them over.
Your time can vary depending on the size and thickness of the carrots. I will suggest cutting them a little thick as they taste better than thinner ones.
Why Is This Recipe So Loved?
Simple and quick.
Needs only a few ingredients.
You can easily change the seasoning according to your taste and preferences.
Your time can vary depending on your air fryer type and the size of your carrots. Keep an eye out after a few minutes for a perfect roast carrot.
Do not overcrowd the air fryer, otherwise, you will get steamed carrots, not roasted carrots. My air fryer is a little small so I always make roasted carrots in two batches for my family of four.
