My favorite for roasted have been orange skinned sweet potatoes. They are moist, sweet & creamy. Today I am using Garnet sweet potatoes.

Look for firm potatoes without much bruises or discolorations. Avoid the ones that are becoming softer. Store them in a cool, dry, dark, but well ventilated place.

How lớn Cut Sweet Potatoes for Roasting?

For this particular recipe, we’re roasting sweet potato cubes, & I recommend cutting the sweet potato into½ inch chunks.

You can also cut them into fries or wedges. The cooking time varies by the thickness and size.

First, wash & peel the sweet potato. It is easier lớn peel the skin using a peeler.

You can skip peeling them, if you are buying organic. My family prefers peeled sweet potatoes.

Note: you want a sharp chefs knife to lớn cut sweet potatoes. They can be firm và hard khổng lồ cut.

After peeling, cut into half or 3 pieces depending on the length of the sweet potato.

Then please one portion vertically on the cutting board. & make cuts into it as shown in the picture above. You want to cut the slices about ½ inch in size.

Then lay each slice flat on the cutting board và make half inch cubes.

Try to lớn keep all cubes similar sized.

How to lớn Roast Sweet Potatoes in the Air Fryer?

A little seasoning goes a long way for these sweet potatoes. I lượt thích to keep it simple và toss the cubes with in some avocado or olive oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Set well so all the sweet potatoes are coated in the oil and seasoning.

Let"s talk about preheating the air fryer. I have made these both with & without preheating & it works well either way. When not preheating, it takes couple of minutes more lớn get the perfect roasted sweet potatoes.

Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket.

I used my Instant Vortex air fryer for this recipe. It has the preheat option, so I preheated the air fryer lớn 400°F.

This air fryer reminds after preheating to add the food, and then also reminds khổng lồ turn or shake the food. I feel that is a great little feature.

Air fryer for 10-12 minutes for the perfect texture. Shake the basket at about 6 minutes.

If you lượt thích them more crunchy, then add a couple of extra minutes.

Air fryer takes half the time than oven, So on regular days and for small quantities I prefer khổng lồ use air fryer.

Note: When I make these for the baby, then I cut them into even smaller pieces & air fry for 8-10 minutes.

If you want lớn cook in the oven, preheat the oven lớn 425°F, and cook for about 30 minutes. Toss the sweet potatoes every 10-15 minutes so they cook evenly.

My Pro-tips

Do not overcrowd the air fryer. Cook in batches. No need khổng lồ boil them before roasting. Yay! Serve them right away, they soften as they cool.
