When I used to look at dishes, I always thought I don’t have the equipment to make this. A kitchen machine, a food processor, but also an air fryer can be the devices that allow you to make any dish. Or at least a lot of dishes. This are devices that you will use a lot. You can use them for making: Chocolate Chip Cookies or Kataifi. Today I have a nice recipe for you that relates to an Air Fryer. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries.

What is the definition of Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

The meaning is:

”Peeled sweet potatoes that are cut just like fries. These are then baked in the air fryer”.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Making fries is so easy. If you want to make the fries even better, you need sweet potato. Besides that it is tastier, it also provides a change if you have always the normal fries. And the great thing is that everyone likes this, including children.

You may think why you should use an air fryer when you can also deep fry them. The advantage of an air fryer is that you need less oil. Ultimately, it is a lot healthier to use an air fryer. The fries will also have a crispy outer layer and you will still notice that it is soft on the inside. In short, the perfect fries.

To make the air fryer sweet potato fries, you will first have to peel the sweet potatoes. I would start with 3 large sweet potatoes that are have a fair length. You can also use 4 or 5 potatoes, depending on the size. If you like small fries, you can also use a small sweet potato. You peel the sweet potatoes and then you can cut the ends off. By cutting of the edges you are left with straight pieces. The next step is to cut the sweet potato into the desired length. Keep in mind that the pieces will shrink slightly due the heat. There is actually no ideal size. It’s what you want!

Cooking Sweet Potato Fries with the Air Fryer

When you have finished slicing the sweet potato to the correct size, it is time to bake them with hot air. Before you can use an Air Fryer, they must be preheated just like an oven. When the Air Fryer is preheated, you have two choices:

  1. Salt & olive oil
  2. Salt, olive oil and more herbs

You can choose to sprinkle the sweet potatoes with salt and olive oil. Then you put them in the air fryer. The second choice you have is to use more herbs in addition to only salt and olive oil. You can think of pepper, garlic, paprika powder, ginger, onion powder or parsley. My personal favorite is:

  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Smoked Paprika Powder
  • Union Powder

The easiest thing is to take a bowl. You put the sweet potatoes in a bowl with all the herbs. Mix all the spices through the sweet potatoes with your hands. Then you place the sweet fries in the basket. A tip: make sure there is enough space for the fires. It is better to fill the basket twice than to have a portion that is not quite right. You can cook the potatoes for 10 minutes at 180 degrees celcius. After the 10 minutes, you can taste the fries. If you think it will take longer, you can do this every 30 seconds.
