Perfectly seasoned and cooked to crispy perfection in the air fryer, these sweet potato fries are sure to become a favorite snack or side dish for any occasion. Let's dive into the step-by-step process of creating this delightful treat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed and peeled

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Optional: additional seasonings such as cayenne pepper, onion powder, or rosemary for added flavor

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Sweet Potatoes:

  • Begin by scrubbing the sweet potatoes under cold running water to remove any dirt or debris. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel.

  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into evenly sized fries. Aim for uniform thickness to ensure even cooking.

2. Season the Fries:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato fries with olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Toss the fries until they are evenly coated with the seasonings.

  • For added flavor, feel free to incorporate additional seasonings such as cayenne pepper for a spicy kick, onion powder for depth of flavor, or rosemary for a fragrant herbal note.

3. Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for a few minutes to ensure it's hot and ready for cooking.

4. Cook the Crispy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries:

  • Once the air fryer is preheated, arrange the seasoned sweet potato fries in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Avoid overcrowding to allow for proper air circulation and even cooking.

  • Cook the sweet potato fries in the air fryer for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time to ensure they cook evenly. The fries should be golden brown and crispy on the outside, with a tender interior.

  • Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fries and the efficiency of your air fryer, so keep an eye on them towards the end of the cooking process to prevent overcooking.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once the sweet potato fries are cooked to perfection, carefully remove them from the air fryer and transfer them to a serving platter.

  • Serve the crispy sweet potato fries hot, either as a standalone snack or as a flavorful side dish alongside your favorite dipping sauces such as ketchup, aioli, or sriracha mayo.

Tips for Perfect Crispy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries:

  • For extra crispy fries, soak the cut sweet potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes before seasoning and cooking. This helps remove excess starch and ensures a crispier texture.

  • Experiment with different seasonings and spices to customize the flavor of your sweet potato fries according to your preferences.

  • Avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket to allow for proper air circulation, which helps achieve crispier results.

  • Don't forget to shake the basket halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning and crispiness on all sides of the fries.

With this easy-to-follow recipe, you can enjoy delicious and crispy sweet potato fries right from the comfort of your own home. Whether you're looking for a healthier snack option or a flavorful side dish, these air fryer sweet potato fries are sure to satisfy your cravings and impress your taste buds.
