Easy Carrot Fries Recipe for Air Fryer

People say carrots are for rabbits.  Carmina decided to make her carrots the healthy way. Easy Carrots Fries for Air Fryer Ingredients: 2 - Pieces of Carrots (washed, peel and slice into thin slices) Olive Oil Garlic Powder Preparing: Add the olive oil and garlic powder let it sit for twenty minutes to absorb on both sides of the carrots. Cooking: Place it on your tray of your air fryer making sure there is space.  Cook in the setting what is instructed for fries. I cooked mine for ten minutes no need to turn it over. I had to use the air fryer two times since there wasn't room to fill the whole tray. Dipping Sauce: Honestly, I prefer ranch dressing since didn't have it available just used ketchup of course depending on your preference. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for ingredients to make carrot fries. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a place to look, discover and share. Thank you for your support!

Mom Violy last time she has eaten at  The Aristocrat Restaurant  was with her cousin Marigold. Sometimes we are drawn by memories places you use to eat with your relative. When you reached a certain age people tend to remember places they have eaten in the past. The relative you use to eat out and dine at The Aristocrat Restaurant doesn't quite remember who you are. Carmina was able to bring Mom Violy to The Aristocrat Restaurant. I was able to see one of their branches located inside the Quezon Memorial Circle at passing when looking for Mom Violy's garden needs.
