Roasted sweet potato cubes are a delicious and healthy side dish that can be easily prepared in an air fryer. Not only are sweet potatoes packed with nutrients, but they also have a naturally sweet and savory flavor that pairs well with a variety of dishes.
To roast sweet potato cubes in an air fryer, you’ll need:
- 1-2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1-2 tablespoons olive oil or melted coconut oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Optional: herbs and spices of your choice (such as rosemary, thyme, paprika, or cumin)
First, preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the air fryer is heating up, place the sweet potato cubes in a large bowl and toss them with the oil, salt, pepper, and any optional herbs and spices. Make sure the cubes are evenly coated.
Next, place the sweet potato cubes in the basket of the air fryer in a single layer, taking care not to overcrowd the basket. If you have a lot of sweet potatoes, you may need to cook them in batches.
Cook the sweet potatoes for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket every 5-7 minutes to ensure even cooking. The sweet potatoes are done when they are tender and start to brown around the edges.
Serve the roasted sweet potato cubes hot, as a side dish for grilled chicken, pork, or steak, or as a topping for salads or grain bowls. You can also enjoy them as a snack on their own, topped with a sprinkle of salt and a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt.
Overall, roasted sweet potato cubes in the air fryer are a quick and easy way to add some healthy, flavorful goodness to your meals. Give them a try and see how they become a new favorite in your kitchen!
