Let's cook the purple sweet potatoes
The cooking method is another thing that you may consider when it comes to cooking in order to preserve all nutrients in the food as much as you can. From the Food Chemistry research in 2016. researchers found that the air-frying cooking method increased available antioxidants in purple sweet potatoes to 31% while the other method such as baking and stir-frying lost about 20-60% of the antioxidants.
First, you are going to wash purple sweet potatoes. Then peel the skin and cut them into finger size. Season them with olive oil and salt. I choose pink Himalayan salt, but you can use whatever kind of salt you have. Toss the potatoes, olive oil, and salt together. Make sure they are all coated and seasoned. Cook the potatoes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 - 20 minutes. To make them crispy, lay the potatoes on the air fryer in a single layer. Flip or shake them halfway through. And voila, you get perfectly crispy and flavorful purple sweet potatoes for everyone.
You can serve them with ketchup or spicy mayo, but to be honest I just love the way they taste without any dipping.
