I have not personally tried these flavor combinations but I bet they'd taste great.
Choose sweet potatoes that are firm to the touch without any bruises.
Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene, fiber, potassium and vitamin A.
It takes 10 minutes to roast sweet potatoes in the air fryer if they are cubed. Allot extra time if you use larger chunks.
Step One: Dice the sweet potatoes into cubes.
The easiest way to do this is to slice the sweet potato into long slices and then cut those slices into "fries" and then chop each "fry" shape into cubes.
I like to go on the smaller side but just know if you make them bigger, you may need to add a few more minutes to your cook time.
Step Two: Toss sweet potatoes with 1 teaspoon olive oil and spices.
Step Four: Place in air fryer basket and cook at 400 F for about 10 minutes.
