up to 1 teaspoon seasonings of choice - see note


In a medium bowl, toss together the sweet potato chunks with the lime juice, oil and salt, making sure to coat the potato pieces well.
Air fry at 400° F for 15 to 20 minutes, stopping to shake the basket after 8 minutes.

If sweet potato peel isn't your thing, feel free to peel your sweet potatoes prior to air frying. I like the texture the peels bring to the table, but I also know that this is a divisive topic!
Feel free to mix up the oils for added flavor. Toasted sesame oil and melted coconut oil are both great substitutes for the olive oil.
For an oil-free option, use a tablespoon of maple syrup instead of a teaspoon of oil.
You can omit the salt, if you want. If you do, I definitely recommend using one or more of the spices listed in the seasoning section below.
Optional seasoning ideas:
chili powder
curry powder
ground sage
