How to make maple glazed air fryer carrot fries

On our cheesy air fryer carrots, we use vegetarian Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, fresh parsley, and salt and pepper.
They are SO good; they barely make it out of the air fryer without someone grabbing one!
Why cook in the air fryer?
Cooking in the air fryer is usually a healthier alternative to deep frying food.
And there are so many different healthy air fryer recipes!
We find our air fryer incredibly useful for acting as an ‘overspill’ oven when we’re catering to large groups and there are many dishes.
In the summer it’s ideal to air fry food because turning on the oven makes your kitchen SO hot!
Which air fryer should I use?
Full disclosure here, we haven’t tested ALL the air fryers on the market.
That would be impossible.
But we have tried several and all we can do is tell you which air fryer we love right now.
This is the air fryer that we like.
Because of the size of the basket, the glass panel that you can see your food cooking through, it has a light, so you can easily check the progress of your air frying.
How do I store air fried carrots?
If you have leftover cooked carrots, then keep them stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
They should keep for up to 4 days.
How do I reheat air fryer carrots with maple glaze?
If you’d like to reheat your carrots, then preheat your air fryer to 350°F/180°C and cook them for approximately 5 minutes.
We recommend keeping an eye on them as you cook, as they may need longer or shorter in the air fryer.
Controversial as it may be, there’s nothing we like better than to eat cold air fryer carrots along with our favorite ranch dipping sauce.
Try it, you may surprise yourself!
Make them vegan
The only ingredient that isn’t vegan friendly in this easy recipe is the unsalted butter.
Simply use plant based vegan butter instead and you’re good to go!
Everyone can enjoy your roasted carrots then!
