RECIPES:  Easy Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries can also be cooked in a traditional oven.
INGREDIENTS

  • 3 sweet potatoes or yams
  • 1 Tbsp (or less) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • salt
  • Harissa seasoning
  • cumin

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat a pot of water (about a gallon) on the stove. Salt the water with about 1 Tbsp. sea salt.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice in 1/2” sticks.
  3. When the water is boiling, add the sweet potatoes and boil for about 4 minutes. The goal is not to cook it till it’s done. Just pre-cook a little to release the starches. This will make the fries more crispy.
  4. Drain the potatoes, add oil, and season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings. I use Harissa seasoning. Cumin is excellent as is chili powder. Mix gently so the sweet potatoes don’t break up.
  5. Place in an air fryer at highest setting and cook for about 12-15 minutes, shaking the basket intermittently.
  6. If you don’t have an air fryer, then bake in an oven at 425° for about 15 minutes. When fries are cooked to the crispiness you desire, sprinkle a little more salt on them and serve.
