Ingredients:– 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into matchsticks or wedges– 2 tablespoons olive oil– 1 teaspoon paprika– 1 teaspoon garlic powder– 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin– 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)– 1/4 teaspoon black pepper– Optional: cayenne pepper for some heat
Instructions:1. Preheat the Air Fryer:Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
Prepare Sweet Potatoes:Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into matchsticks or wedges, depending on your preference. The smaller and thinner the cuts, the crispier they will be.
Seasoning:In a large bowl, toss the sweet potato sticks with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper if using. Ensure the sweet potato fries are evenly coated with the seasoning.
Load the Air Fryer:Place the seasoned sweet potato fries in the air fryer basket, spreading them out to ensure they cook evenly. It's essential not to overcrowd the basket to allow proper air circulation.
Air Fry:Cook the sweet potato fries in the preheated air fryer at 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking.
Check for Doneness:Test the fries for doneness by poking them with a fork. They should be golden brown and crispy on the outside while tender on the inside.
Serve:Once done, remove the sweet potato fries from the air fryer and serve immediately. You can enjoy them on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, aioli, or yogurt-based dips.
