Roast carrots with vegan Labneh. I don't know about you, but sometimes I just don't know what to cook at weekends. Do I want to spend a long time cooking, or do I want something quick and satisfying? The days when I could spend all weekend cooking and blogging are long past, and now I'm happy to utilise tools to make cooking easier for me.

Ninja UK (affiliate link) recently gifted me a Foodi Max 9 in 1 Multi Cooker, and I've been experimenting with different ways to use it.

The Multi Cooker has pros and cons, as with any "do it all" kitchen gadget. I love that it is versatile, and that everything I have cooked in it has been cooked quickly and exactly as I want it. However, I find it cumbersome and unsightly in my tiny kitchen. Because it is pretty heavy, once you have it place, you don't really want to move it.

So, I'm very torn about it and I think it's important to note that, despite being great at cooking, it might not be aesthetically suitable for everyone or the size might not be convenient.

For those of you who are on the fence about purchasing one, I'm going to share some of my successful recipes here, and hopefully make them adaptable for people who don't have a Ninja and want to use an oven instead.

My cumin-spiced roast carrots with Labneh is a perfect dish for when you want to serve something a bit different to just usual hummus and veg, and has a perfect autumnal feel.

I have made my recipe to serve two people, it doubles up easily for more.

How do you make Roast Carrots in a Ninja 9 in 1 Air Fryer?

This is an incredibly easy recipe.

  • Set your Ninja to Air Fry, 200c. Preheat for 5 minutes whilst you prep carrots.
  • Clean and trim your carrots. I love to use the spindly baby carrots that come tied in bunches, but any will do. If they are larger, you will need to adjust your cooking times slightly.
  • Dry them on kitchen roll.
  • In a large bowl whisk together olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin seeds. Feel free to change this up and add your own favourite seasonings.
  • Throw in the carrots and coat well in the mixture.
  • Place carrots in the basket of the Air Fryer and cook for about 15 minutes, depending on how well done you like your carrots, or the size of them.

That's it! I love to serve my roasted carrots with my vegan Labneh!
