Honey Roasted Carrots Tips

  • You can bake these honey glazed carrots even if you don’t have an Air Fryer, just follow the recipe exactly.
  • If you keep your carrots thicker they might need longer time to cook, so increase the time of cooking to make them softer.
  • Remember to add half of the honey glaze to your veggies before cooking/baking, after cooking drizzle with rest of the sauce.
  • Are you looking for an Air Fryer? This is the one I recommend that I use a lot Secura Air Fryer, it is big and I don’t have to cook my food in batches, perfect for families. Also, I have Gourmia Air Fryer that I like but it is much smaller, if you have more food you would have to cook in batches, perfect for 1 -2 people.
