Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Air fryer sweet potato fries are all people’s favorite side dish that pairs perfectly with anything. These sweet potatoes are finger-licking and super easy to make. 

And again, my magic air fryer saves my time and solves my problems. When I want something quick and tasty, the air fryer is the winner, and the dish turns out delicious, quick, and with no mess. 

Sweet potatoes, aka batata potatoes, are a healthier alternative to ordinary potatoes, with many more positive benefits and healthy sides. If this potato is cooked with herbs and Parmigiano and served with a tasty sauce, they are more than delicious and aromatic; they taste fantastic. 

Air Fryer Sweet Potato FriesFrench fries are the kid’s most beloved dish, and because my daughter is not an expectation, she likes them very much. As a mom, I want her to eat healthier and more healthy dishes. These addicting sweet potatoes are a good alternative for kids, but you have to pay attention not to overcook them, as you would like to serve some crispy on the outside and tender and soft on the inside.

How long does it take to air-fry sweet potatoes?

Unlike a conventional oven, where you will bake french fries for 50 minutes, not less, the air fryer is much more convenient as you will fry sweet potatoes for about 10 to a maximum of 15 minutes. It saves time and effort; this is why I choose to cook frequently and more dishes in my air fryer. If you want your french fries to be crispier and crunchy, you can leave them for five more minutes, but some 15 minutes are usually enough.

Why soak sweet potatoes before air frying?

Soaking potatoes before cooking them is optional and of your choice. If you soak sweet or ordinary potatoes, you remove the excess starch, thus helping them get crispier and more delicious. If I am in a hurry, I skip this process, but usually, I try to soak potatoes for at least 15-20 minutes.

Is an air fryer healthier than an oven?

This is the most important question I asked my friends before buying the air fryer. I know that baking is good and often preserves good nutrients, and the food tastes fantastic. Still, time is critical nowadays, and when you have an excellent alternative to oven-baking, why not use an air fryer? 

Cooking in an air fryer saves you time, effort, and smell, and one more positive point here is that it is a healthy alternative to deep-fried or baked dishes. An air fryer is worth its money and investment.
