air fryer carrot fries

Step aside potatoes. There’s a new fry in town. Carrots may seem like an unlikely choice for fries, but once you try them, we have a feeling you’ll understand why we’re so obsessed. We used cornstarch to help with that crispy texture, and then threw them in the air fryer to get them perfectly cooked. Serve them up with your burger bowls as a delicious side or even our homemade garlic hummus for a great game day snack. These air fryer carrot fries are so easy, so healthy, and so tasty – everything you could ask for from a fry.

So why enjoy a carrot fry instead of a more traditional option like a white potato or even sweet potato fry? Well, they’re full of vitamins, including Vitamin A which is essential for vision. In fact, just one large carrot (about 1 cup) offers 100% of the daily target for vitamin A. They’re also lower in calories and carbs, and pack a punch of fiber. It’s a great ingredient to have as part of your healthy lifestyle! Enjoying them as fries is fun, flavorful, and satisfies that craving for a crispy, salty side.
