  4. Air Fry Carrots:
    • Place the seasoned carrots in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded.

  5. Optional Additions:
    • If desired, sprinkle the air-fried carrots with fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary immediately after cooking for added flavor.
    • You can also sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the carrots during the last few minutes of cooking for a cheesy twist.
    • For a touch of sweetness, drizzle honey over the air-fried carrots before serving.
  6. Serve: Once cooked, remove the air-fried carrots from the air fryer basket and transfer them to a serving dish. Serve hot as a delicious side dish or snack.

Note: Cooking times may vary slightly depending on the thickness of the carrot sticks or rounds and your air fryer model. Adjust cooking time accordingly for desired tenderness and caramelization.
