Check out my recipe for Ninja Foodi Carrots! They are so good and it's amazing how easy they are to make!
The Ninja Foodi Smart XL Pro Grill and Griddle has a griddle attachment that works perfectly for making glazed carrots! It's quick, it's easy, there's hardly any cleanup and there's less butter/oil used.
I make these carrots ALL THE TIME! Usually, I make them in a pan on the stove. Some like to use an Instant Pot or air fry their carrots. But, using the griddle feature of the Ninja Foodi Grill worked out really well.
If you don't have the griddle on your grill, this recipe would also work if you have another version of the Ninja Foodi Grill with a grill grate- use the smooth side up.
My favorite thing about these glazed carrots is the way that the carrots really sweeten up and turn a little brown on the edges when they are cooked. They are the perfect vegetable side dish to go with any meal!
I usually find myself "taste-testing" them as they are cooking. If you're like me and do the same thing, you might want to make a few extra carrots!
Glazed carrots are great for a quick weeknight meal or they can even be served alongside a beautiful roast, ham, or turkey for the holidays. There's hardly any prep time but they taste like you really put a lot of effort in.
Tips for making Ninja Foodi Grill Glazed Carrots
I prefer to use full-sized, peeled carrots for this recipe. It's fairly important to cut the carrots into uniformly sized slivers so that they all cook evenly in the same amount of time. You can use baby carrots, but it will be harder to cut them into slivers.
Yes! You can make glazed carrots the day before you plan on serving them. However, I would recommend cooking them for a few minutes less than you would if you were planning on eating them right away. To reheat them, just microwave them until warm.
Carrots are quite healthy for you to eat. They are high in fiber, vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin K, and calcium. Carrots are said to reduce your risk for diabetes, strengthen bones, and help your eyesight. Be careful though, eating too many carrots on a regular basis can start to make your skin turn orange.
Technically, no. But I HIGHLY recommend that you do so. If you don't preheat the griddle, you will start out by cooking on a cold surface. The griddle will not properly sear and brown whatever it is cooking.
Yes. You will need to use a small amount of butter or oil to allow the carrots to brown properly and release from the griddle easily. I prefer to use butter and Olive oil for this recipe. The butter adds a nice flavor and allows the carrots to caramelize nicely. I add the Olive oil so that the butter doesn't burn.
I like to peel the carrots and then quarter them lengthwise. This works really well for using the griddle feature. If you are grilling carrots using a traditional grill, make sure that they are not cut thin enough to fall through the grill grate.
The easy answer is yes. You can make the glazed carrots ahead of time. However, I would highly recommend undercooking the carrots since they will cook more when you heat them up to use the next day.

What you'll need to make Ninja Foodi Grill Glazed Carrots:
I really like these Ninja Foodi Grill Glazed Carrots because they are both sweet and savory. But, feel free to change it up a bit. Instead of using garlic and honey, you could change up the flavors by sprinkling with a little onion powder, paprika, parmesan cheese or even adding herbs like fresh thyme. Just as long as you keep the ecooking method the same and use the butter and olive oil, you can create an endless amount of carrot creations!
