These simple air fried carrots and potatoes are incredibly easy and seasoned to perfection. With spices you likely already have in your pantry and no need to peel the carrots or potatoes (unless you just really want to... 😉), this is one of the easiest side dishes to make! Perfect for practically any meal - even a holiday - here's what you're going to love about these:

  • Using the air fryer gives these a great texture...slightly crispy on the exterior with a tender interior.
  • The seasonings are simple and offer flavor without overpowering the vegetables themselves. Plus, the subtle seasoning is enough to create great flavor without taking the attention away from your main course. The perfect dish companion!
  • Customize with the seasonings of your choice for something truly perfect for you.

♻️ Potatoes and carrots are an eco-friendly vegetable choice that can (typically) be sourced locally, or even grown in your own backyard or patio!

  • 10 ounces (about 2) gold potatoes
  • 6 ounces (about 2) carrots
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

Chop the potatoes and carrots into pieces about 1-inch by 1-inch in size.
In a medium bowl, add the olive oil and toss (using your fingers) until each piece is coated.
Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and seasonings. Stir to distribute.
Preheat air fryer to 450ºF.
Add the vegetables to the basket and fry for 10 minutes.
When done, use tongs or pour the contents onto a platter.

  • A little olive oil goes a long way! Take a few minutes to massage the olive oil into the carrots and potatoes - you'll find it coats each piece.
