I love using sweet potatoes as a side dish to make for several reasons:

Firstly, sweet potatoes are a healthy and nutritious option. They are high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and C, potassium, and fiber. They are also a good source of antioxidants, which can help to boost the immune system and protect against disease.

Secondly, sweet potatoes are versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. They can be baked, grilled, or mashed, and they pair well with a variety of flavors, including savory and sweet.

Finally, cooking sweet potatoes in an air fryer like this sweet potato wedges is quick and easy. The air fryer creates a crispy exterior while the inside remains tender and flavorful.

Ingredients and Tools You’ll Need for Making Air Fryer Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet Potatoes – The sweet, slightly nutty flavor in sweet potatoes is so good and perfect for this recipe!

Non-stick cooking spray or olive oil spray – These ingredients are used to help the sweet potato wedges cook evenly and achieve a crispy texture. The non-stick cooking spray helps to prevent the wedges from sticking to the air fryer basket, while the olive oil adds additional flavor and moisture.

Olive oil – The distinctive, slightly fruity flavor in olive oil adds moisture and flavor to the sweet potato wedges and helps to create a crispy texture when cooked.

Coarse salt – Salt helps to balance out the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and enhances the overall flavor of the wedges.

Onion powder – Onion powder adds depth and savory flavor to the sweet potato wedges and helps to balance out the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.

Black pepper – Black pepper adds a slight heat to the sweet potato wedges.

Paprika – The paprika’s slightly sweet, smoky flavor adds a subtle warmth and depth of flavor to the sweet potato wedges.

Fresh parsley – Parsley is often used as a garnish for a pop of color and flavor. It pairs well with the sweet potato wedges and adds a fresh, bright finish to the finished dish.

  1. To achieve a crispy outside, be sure to coat the sweet potato wedges evenly with the oil and spice blend.

  6. To reduce the prep time, you can also purchase pre-cut sweet potato wedges from the grocery store.
