These ultra-crispy sweet potato fries are a healthy snack or side dish, extra crispy on the outside, tender and flavorful on the inside, made in 10 minutes in an air fryer.
– 4 medium sweet potatoes – 3 tbsp olive oil – 3 tsp cornstarch – 3/4 tsp garlic powder – 3/4 tsp paprika – 1/8 tsp pepper – 1/2 tsp sea salt
Wash and peel your sweet potatoes. Cut the potatoes into fries. We want them to be quite small, about 1/4-inch wide.
Place sweet potato fries into a large bowl, and cover with water. Let them soak for a minimum of 1 hour or as long as overnight.
Drain the water out and place the sweet potatoes on a towel on the counter. Pat dry with a towel. You want them to be as dry as possible.
Place sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Add cornstarch and seasoning. Mix until the cornstarch disappears. Add 3 tbsp of olive oil and mix again.
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add sweet potatoes to the basket of the air fryer. Cook for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through, at about 5 minutes.
