Method

  • Step 1

    Soak the prepped potatoes in cold water for 45 minutes to remove the starch.

  • Step 2

    Insert crisper plate in pan and pan in unit. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 150°C, and set time to 43 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin and allow to preheat for 3 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Dry 500g of sweet potatoes wedges with a towel until very dry. Place them in a large mixing bowl with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and one tablespoon paprika. Stir to coat every wedge evenly.

  • Step 4

    Once unit has preheated, place wedges on the crisper plate. After 5 minutes, remove pan from unit and shake chips or toss them with silicone-tipped tongs. Reinsert pan to resume cooking.

  • Step 5

    After 20 minutes, place the wedges in another bowl, and start again with another set of 500g sweet potatoes wedges from step 3.

  • Step 6

    When the first cooking step of all wedges is over, place them all in the same mixing bowl and add a tablespoon vegetable oil with the thyme, salt and cumin. Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 200°C, and set time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin and allow to preheat for 3 minutes.

  • Step 7

    After the unit has preheated, place all the fries in the pan and resume cooking.

  • Step 8

    Remove pan from unit after 5 minutes and shake the sweet potatoes. Reinsert pan to resume cooking.

  • Step 9

    When cooking is complete, serve immediately.
