Carrots were originally found in Persia (Thank you Wikipedia) and originally they were eaten for their leaves and seeds. I am thinking about Carrot Salad, has anyone had that? I will have to put that on my list of things to make, although I don’t think I would need an air fryer or Instant Pot for that. I will post that recipe when I make it. What I found interesting from reading about carrots on Wikipedia is that every region or country has their own way of eating carrots. I will have to put them on my list of future recipes.
Now, the baby carrot industry was one of the best things that happened to carrots, who doesn’t love buying a bag of carrots and just throwing them into the Instant Pot or Air Fryer. Talk about a healthy and convenient recipe.
This carrot recipe can be made in a few minutes, it’s a simple recipe that goes with any meal. My kids love them and would eat them all the time, they have the right flavor balance, not too sweet, not sour.

This is a really easy side dish. I got a great deal at Trader Joe's on already peeled carrots, with all of the colors of the rainbow. This can be really easily changed up, by adding some potatoes, for a quick side dish of air fryer carrots and potatoes. This is a great alternative to the traditional air fryer carrots with brown sugar.
- 1 pound carrots, rainbow colors
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
These are the carrots, I found at Trader Joes, and are using in this recipe.
Cut the carrots in half horizontally, as I cut them, I added them to a large mixing bowl.
Then pour int the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to mix well.
Pour the coated carrots into the air fryer basket or tray.
Set the temperature to 400 degrees F, for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes flip the carrots and air fry for another 5 minutes.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
