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 and tasty vegetable side dish, made in the air fryer. The best thing is that it tastes like grilled carrots, with a great flavor and texture.
- 1 pound fresh carrots
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Start by cutting your carrots in half and then in a diagonal.
After you are done cutting them, place them in a small mixing bowl, add the olive oil, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. I use my hands to coat them.
Then spread the carrots out in the air fryer basket or air fryer tray.
Set the temperature to 400 degrees F, for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes, flip the carrots (or shake if you have a basket air fryer) and air fry for another 5 minutes.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
