Crispy Sweet Potato Fries Recipe
Prep Time: 20-30 Minutes
Sweet Potato Fries:
2 Sweet Potatoes
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, finely grated
1/2 teaspoon Salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon Red Chile Flakes
Fresh Parsley to garnish, optional
Alternative Veggies to Use for Fries:
Kale (cook at a lower temp around 300f)
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Ketchup
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/8 teaspoon Ground Mustard
Pinch of Paprika
Prepare the potatoes: slice sweet potatoes into slices about 1/4-inch thick, leaving skins on. Soak wedges in water for 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels or a lint-free towel.
In a large bowl, toss sweet potato slices with olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and red Chile flakes.
Cook Fries in the Air Fryer: place wedges in the Air Fryer basket or drawer in a single layer so that none are overlapping. Cook at 375F for 10-15 minutes until fries are golden and crisp.
Remove from Air Fryer and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Repeat with remaining sweet potato wedges. Serve with ketchup or fry sauce, recipe below.
Make the Fry Sauce:
Mix everything together and refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes for flavors to meld. Store in the fridge until ready
