Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet potatoes have been cultivated for thousands of years and were originally grown in Central and South America. They were brought to Europe by Spanish explorers and eventually made their way to North America. Sweet potato wedges have become a popular side dish in recent years, often found on menus in restaurants and served at home as a healthier alternative to french fries. By using an air fryer, you can achieve the same crispy texture and delicious flavor without the added oil and calories.
