Tips for the Best Air Fried Carrots
- Shake ’em up! Don’t forget to give those carrots a bit of a shake once in a while, when they are cooking.
- Cut the carrots the day before, toss them with the spices and the oil. They will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two. They will then be ready to be tossed into the air fryer.
- When cutting the carrots make sure that they are all the same size. This will ensure that they cook evenly.
- The joy of the air fryer is that it works so well with frozen vegetables. It makes them crispy without becoming soggy. There is no need to even thaw them before cooking and this saves time.
- To reheat roasted carrots in the air preheat the air fryer to 325°F and cook for 5 minutes or until heated through.
