How to upgrade

For this carrot chips recipe I go simple, but feel free to add any other stuff you like. Some options:

Brown sugar

Dijon mustard


Minced garlic

Hot sauce

Can I make it without Air Fryer Lid?

Yes. The carrots wont be crispy, but yet the taste will be wonderful.

In order to do so follow these steps:

  1. Pour 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot.
  2. Please a steamer basket inside the Instant Pot
  3. Cover the carrots with paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper and place them inside the steamer basket.
  4. Close the lid and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes
  5. Do a quick release and serve.

  1. These are excellent! I tried it potatoes too, and the sauce is ridiculously yummy. The carrots are really good but I think I like it even better with potatoes!
