Make Super Savory Carrot Fries in Your Air Fryer

Sometimes we take carrots for granted. They’re everywhere — in lunch boxes with hummus, alongside potatoes and pearl onions under a pot roast, chopped or shredded in garden salads, and so on. If you want to take a break from the typical ways of using carrots, why not toss them in the air fryer and pretend they’re fries. Here’s a simple and quick recipe that will make you embrace the lowly carrot and thumb your nose at French fries. 
4 medium carrots  teaspoons of duck fat, bacon fat or olive oil 
Garlic salt 
2 teaspoons powdered Parmesan cheese 

  • Wash and peel the carrots and then slice them in half horizontally to separate the thick upper portion from the skinnier bottom half. Cut the thick section into 4 sticks and the skinnier segment into 2 or 3. 
  • Melt the duck fat or bacon fat in the microwave if needed. 
  • Add the carrots to a big bowl and drizzle the fat on top, tossing to coat.
  • Season with garlic salt and toss again. 
  • Heat the air fryer to 365º F. Add the carrots in an even layer and cook for 5 minutes. 
  • Return to the bowl and toss with Parmesan cheese. 
  • Return the carrots to the air fryer and cook them another 10-15 minutes, depending on how deeply browned you like your carrots. 
  • Serve with any dipping sauce you like.
