These crispy air fryer carrot fries are simple, healthy and delicious. If you're a fan of sweet potato fries, we have a feeling you're going to love these.
Seriously, is there a better way to eat carrots?
With only 5 ingredients and 20 minutes to spare, you're on your way to pure delicious-ness.
In terms of serving these fries, pretty much any sauce would do. Flavour-wise, they're quite similar to sweet potato fries, so things like ketchup and aioli would work well. Because hummus is the best, you know we had to make a special hummus dip for these (which is highly-recommended).
What Makes These Carrot Fries Crispy?
The secret to making these carrot fries turn crispy (and not mushy) is to coat them in semolina before air-frying. Semolina flour is a high-protein durum wheat flour, the kind that is typically used to make pasta.
You can find it at Woolworths, but if you don't have any on hand, you can also swap it out for corn starch or corn flour. Anything that gives it a nice bit of coating.
Ingredients for the Fries
- Carrots: Nothing fancy here, just your average carrots! Cut them into chip- shapes if you want them fry-like. But really, the choice is up to you.
- Olive oil: My #1 cooking tip is to ALWAYS use a high-quality olive oil. We like Red Island because it's packed full of that deep, rich flavour.
- Garlic powder: We added garlic powder because it's awesome. You should do the same.
- Flaky sea salt: Just like we always recommend high-quality olive oil, another basic we think everyone needs is flaky sea salt. It just adds that gourmet quality to all of your foods. If you don't have any, though, any salt works.
If you want a sauce to go with your crispy air fryer carrot fries, we highly recommend you try this garlic sriracha hummus to go alongside.
