Best ways to prepare the beet in the air fryer


Here come the pro tips! The first step is to wash the beets and then pat them dry. Next, it's time to get your hands on some cooking spray or oil. At this point you can also choose to rub the beets with a bit of seasoning, we suggest salt, pepper, paprika or garlic powder. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try adding some balsamic vinegar, honey or maple syrup to the mix. Be as creative as you like!
