  • 2 medium sized yams
  • 2 tablespoons of Fresh Press Farms Sunflower Oil
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika


      • Wash and peel the yams. Cut them into uniform-sized sticks, about 1/2 inch thick, for even cooking.

      • Place the yam sticks in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle sunflower oil over the yams and toss to coat evenly.

      • Sprinkle garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper over the yams. Toss again to ensure even seasoning.

      • Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (190°C) for about 3-5 minutes.

      • Arrange the seasoned yam sticks in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they aren't overcrowded.

      • Cook the yam fries at 380°F (190°C) for 12-15 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time for even crispiness.

      • Check the fries for doneness. They should be golden brown and crisp on the outside, yet tender on the inside.

      • Serve the crispy air-fryer yam fries hot. They're perfect as a side dish or even as a healthy snack!
