Air Fryer Carrot Fries

Air-fryer carrot fries are a nutty sweet twist on traditional potatoes-based french fries. Not to mention cooking carrot fries in an air-fryer gives a crispier finished result than if you were to bake them.

Why Air-Fryer Carrot Fries?

I was inspired to make carrot fries because I wanted fries but I was out of potatoes (insert dramatic gasp here). What was a fry-loving girl to do?

So I was out of potatoes and decided to get creative. If you know me, you know that I always have a large bag of carrots in my fridge because I give them to my dog as a treat. Being the terrible dog mom I am, I decided to dip into my innocent puppies stash of carrots to make these fries.

And that my friends, is how this easy air fryer carrot fry recipe came to be. I’m not proud and sometimes we have to do what we have to do to honor our fry cravings (sorry Toby).

Ways to Enjoy Air-Fryer Carrot Fries

While the obvious option is to enjoy these air fried carrots is on their own, I’ve also come up with some other creative ways to enjoy them!

  • Dip them in hummus, they’d be especially delicious dipped in my protein hummus or beet hummus.
  • Enjoy them with guacamole
  • Serve them alongside a juicy burger (on a gluten-free bun of course)
  • Make a carrot-fry casserole

The opportunities to enjoy these air-fried carrots are endless.

Why I love my Air Fryer

Aside from being able to make french fries from carrots, my air-fryer has opened my eyes to the world of convection cooking. I love air-fryers because they are:

  • Good for gluten-free cooking
  • Makes “frying” food easier
  • Easier to figure out than the instant pot
  • Feels safer to use than an instant pot (is anyone else terrified of burning themselves from steam with the instant pot?)
  • Pretty much anything I cook in it comes out delicious
  • Perfectly crispy fries are just a few minutes away (with a guarantee of ZERO cross-contact).

I have this air fryer which isn’t like most air-fryers in that it has two fryer racks and a rotisserie option! My mother and my sister both have the traditional air fryers that have a basket you pull out. They too have nothing but great things to say about their fryers.
