We absolutely LOVE a roast dinner in our home! There is something special about getting together with family and having a big steaming hot pile of delicious homemade food.

I love to go all out, and make lots of homemade trimmings for my roast dinner. Serving a variety of vegetables is something that I thoroughly enjoy, and it is great to get some extra goodness into my family when we’re all having a family meal together.

Scroll down towards the end of this post for my honey glazed air fryer carrots recipe card so you can get cooking!

Air fryer carrots - baby carrots made in the air fryer

Ingredients for air fryer carrots

300g baby carrots

Spray oil (olive oil) if you want to make them extra crispy

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional dressing:

2 tbsp honey, 1 tsp parsley (dried is fine if you don’t have fresh!) and 2 tbsp white wine vinegar mixed together. Drizzle this over halfway through the cooking time, when you adjust the temperature. It’ll give a lovely sweet dressing that is just perfect, and super simple too.

Method for air fryer carrots

Scrub your carrots clean. You can peel if you’d like but I typically don’t bother. This helps to cut down on food waste and also there are often lots of health benefits to leaving the skin on root vegetables. I love to save money on fruit and vegetables and cutting down on waste helps a little with this.

Slice them lengthways into 4 or 6 pieces, depending on the size and length of the carrots.

Place your carrots in your air fryer basket. You can also consider using an oven safe tray, if you want to keep the carrots extra succulent.

Cook at 160C for 10 minutes. Then turn up to 200C for a further 10 minutes. Make sure to shake/turn the carrots when you turn the temperature up.

Check these 5 minutes into the second 10 minutes, just to make sure they are not catching/burning, as the cooking time will be dependent on the size of your carrots.

Serve! We love ours with our favourite easy roast dinner recipes and they were absolutely delicious. You do have to pay a little more attention to the cooking than you do in the oven, because they are able to burn that much quicker, but they are worth the extra minute or two of effort!

There you have it! If you want you can parboil them first, and this will reduce the cooking time slightly. It may also make the insides even fluffier.

The cooking time of these airfryer carrots may vary, depending on the size and efficiency of your airfryer.

How to cook carrots:

I personally like to parboil carrots, if I can be bothered with the extra effort, for around 6 minutes in boiling water.

Then I roast for around 25-30 minutes in the oven or 18-20 minutes in the air fryer.

I’ve already shared my air fryer parsnips recipe previously and it’s really easy to make these together in one go.

They cook for similar times, as long as they are similar sizes, so it is really straight forward.
