AirFryer Sweet Potato Fries

If I were to tell you that it is possible to combine the words healthy, delicious and french fries in the same sentence you would not believe me. I do not even believe it. But with the Philips AirFryer it is possible. More popular in Europe, Asia, and Australia, the AirFryer is finally making its way to popularity in the US market just in time for New Year’s resolutions. The last thing I thought I needed was another appliance. I’m already out of kitchen space and have to store a bunch of things from my kitchen in my garage. Surprisingly I have used my AirFryer almost every day since I bought it and not just for french fries. I have made steak, bacon, yellow squash, zucchini, and brussel sprouts in it already. Every time I use it I think of something else I could use it for. Everything comes out delicious and it is easy to use, easy to clean, and saves me so much cooking time. It’s perfect for meals for 2-3 people. My favorite thing i’ve made and the reason I decided to buy the AirFryer is for these sweet potato fries. They are so incredibly delicious you forget they are healthy. With the AirFryer they are crispy outside just like deep fried potatoes but do not taste greasy. They are super easy and of course so delicious. Here is how you make them.

Sweet Potato Air Fries 3

1. Soak Sweet Potato Sticks in water for 30 minutes
2. Rinse and dry
3. Spray with olive oil and add salt
4. Pre-heat AirFryer to 330 degrees
5. Air fry sweet potatoes at 330 degrees for 5 minutes.
6. Open AirFryer, stir potatoes, close AirFryer and increase temperature to 390 degrees.
7. Cook for 10-15 minutes longer {depending on how thick you cut the potatoes} stirring every 5 minutes. Between 10-15 minutes check every 1-2 minutes until done. I like mine to be slightly brown.

    I’m curious why u say to soak the fries for 30minutes first?

      Soaking them removes the extra starch which will make them more crispy when frying.

    Can you blanch them instead of soaking them?

      I haven’t tried blanching them. If you try it, please let me know how it turns out.

      I have tried skipping the soaking process and they did not turn out as crispy.
