Smoky and delicious bacon made from carrots!
- 2 medium carrots
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- ½ tablespoon soy sauce tamari or liquid aminos work too
- ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) if using a regular oven. If using an air-fryer set it to 380°F (190°C).
Wash carrots and peel thinly lengthwise with a vegetable peeler or mandoline slicer.
In a shallow dish, mix together the remainder of the ingredients.
Marinate the carrot strips in the sauce for at least 5 minutes. Work in batches if needed so that the carrots are fully covered.
Place carrots on a lined baking sheet evenly spread out. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes (or in an air-fryer for 5 minutes), flipping halfway through. When they are wavy they are ready. Don't worry if they're not crunchy yet, they will harden more as they cool. Sprinkle with salt if you want them to dry out faster and become crispier.
