  • 1 kg carrots
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chopped parsley to garnish


  • Peel the carrots or them skin on, trim off both ends and cut diagonally into about ½ inch thickness then transfer to a bowl or an oven-safe dish if preferred.
  • Season the carrots with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and olive oil then toss to combine.
  • Preheat the air fryer at 180C/360F for 3 minutes
  • Transfer the seasoned carrots to the air fryer basket and spread them out in a single layer. If using an oven-safe dish, place it directly in the air fryer basket.
  • Cook the carrots until they are tender and caramelised around the edges for 15 to 20 minutes shaking the air fryer basket halfway through.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.



  • Herbs and spices such as thyme, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, paprika, oregano or parsley work well with carrots.
  • For additional flavours like garlic butter, brown butter, honey butter, brown sugar etc add the mixture to the carrots after cooking or halfway through the cooking time. Do keep an eye so the garlic does not burn.
  • You can also flavour this vegetable with lemon butter sauce. Add grated parmesan to the carrot for some cheesy flavour
