Cooked carrots are given a major upgrade with this quick air fryer recipe. Cayenne pepper, black pepper and chili powder give these carrots a little heat, while brown sugar and butter mix to create a sweet caramel flavor. In 10 minutes, you’ll have an impressive side that would have taken 45 minutes in the oven!



Special equipment:
a 6-quart air fryer
  1. Toss the carrots with the butter, sugar, salt, chili powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper, if using, in a medium bowl. Transfer the carrots to a 6-quart air fryer in a single layer and cook at 400 degrees F until browned and slightly charred on the edges, about 10 minutes (see Cook's Note). Sprinkle with the mint and serve immediately.

Cook’s Note

Settings may vary on your air fryer depending on the model. Please refer to the manufacturer’s guide.
