Air Frying Sweet Potato Wedges

In today's post, I am going to share how to air fry sweet potato wedges.

I grew up in a country where sweet potatoes are one of the major cash crops so I have grown up loving them.  Sweet potatoes were like bread for most families during breakfast.

In this case, you will be cooking them in a healthier way as the air fryer allows us to cook using less oil if we want to.

Your health is more important to us so we endeavor to provide recipes that use less oil.

To prepare this we need the following ingredients:


  • 2 sweet potatoes. These should be cut lengthwise into wedges
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • The first thing is to preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Put the potato wedges into a pan or pot of salted water.
  • Boil the contents. Once the boiling point is reached, you need to drain the salted water.
  • Then put the potato wedges into a bowl.
  • Brush the potato wedges with some oil or use a spoon to spread it over the wedges. If you use a spoon then you have to mix them to ensure that the oil has covered the wedges evenly.
  • Then add the chili flakes, salt, and pepper and stir the contents.
  • Place the potatoes into the air fryer basket and cook for approximately 25 minutes. Check after 10 minutes and shake the contents to make sure that they are cooked evenly.
  • Cook until the potatoes are tender and golden brown.
  • Lastly, sprinkle with sea salt before serving.
  • Enjoy!
