  • 3 small sweet potatoes scrubbed and rinsed well. Peeling is optional( 12 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Cut each potato into even ¼ inch thick sticks. Add potatoes to cold water and allow to soak for 15 minutes.
  • Drain out all of the water and place the potato wedges on a kitchen towel. Dry them well and place in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Sprinkle over the cornstarch and toss or mix with a spatula so that the potatoes get evenly coated. Toss with olive oil, salt, garlic powder, cayenne and black pepper.
  • Add the fries to the air fryer basket and air fry at 400°F for 12 mins. Shake Half way through. Add 2 minutes in the end for extra crispy!



Remember to cook in batches, depending on the size of your basket without overcrowding the basket until they’re crispy. I recommend 10 to 12 minutes. This may vary based on your air fryer. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce.
