  • olive oil for brushing

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pound tri-colored baby carrots

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives


  1. Brush an air fryer basket with olive oil.

  2. Whisk together 1 tablespoon olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add carrots and toss to coat. Place carrots in the air fryer basket in a single layer, in batches, if needed.

  3. Cook in the air fryer at 390 degrees F (200 degrees C), stirring once, until tender, about 10 minutes. Transfer warm cooked carrots to a large bowl, add balsamic glaze and butter, and toss to coat. Sprinkle with chives and serve.

Cook's Note:

If you substitute full-sized carrots for baby carrots, just halve any large pieces lengthwise and cut into 2-inch lengths.
