Sweet and Spicy Roasted Carrots (Air Fryer)

Contributed By: Parker


cooking spray
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon hot honey (such as Mike's Hot Honey®)
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
½ pound baby carrots
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
salt and ground black pepper to taste


Step 1 Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray the basket with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 2 Combine butter, honey, orange zest, and cardamom in a bowl. Remove 1 tablespoon of the sauce to a separate bowl and set aside. Add carrots to the remaining sauce and toss until all are well coated. Transfer carrots to the air fryer basket.
Step 3 Air fry until carrots are roasted and fork tender, tossing every 7 minutes, for 15 to 22 minutes. Mix orange juice with reserved honey-butter sauce. Toss with carrots until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Helpful Hints:

These tender and roasted carrots cooked in the air fryer can be on your table in less than half an hour. Tossed in a honey-butter sauce and sprinkled with your choice of fresh basil, chives, or just salt and pepper.
