  9. Add preferred seasoning, shake, cook two more minutes

This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (5.8QT model, affiliate link).

I prefer a fairly thick and chunky sweet potato wedge, so my guide is slightly longer than some. You can of course cook more quickly than 15 minutes if you cut thinner than those wedges you see above.

Seasoning sweet potato wedges

Here are some spice/seasoning blend ideas to liven up your wedges!

  • Sweet ‘n’ smoky – garlic, smoked paprika
  • Southwestern – garlic, cumin, cayenne, chile powder
  • Indian – turmeric, garlic, paprika, garam masala
  • Middle Eastern – sumac, garlic, Aleppo pepper
We recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer like the Habor Meat Thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked. It's quick, under twenty bucks and it's waterproof - and hey - we get a small referral fee for any purchases.
