How to Get Super Crispy Sweet Potato Wedges

  • Soak your sweet potato wedges in cold water for at least an hour before baking. It helps to draw out the starch. Then rinse them off in cold water using a colander, and pat dry with a clean towel before proceeding with the recipe.
  • It is important to not overcrowd the sweet potatoes. If needed, you can always use another pan and bake another batch. Overcrowding the pans will cause your potatoes to steam which is not conducive to crisp outsides.
  • Do not add salt before cooking the potatoes.
  • Choose an oil that has a high smoke point and is neutral in flavour. Crisp sweet potatoes demand higher heat. Let’s avoid smoke billowing out from your oven. Grapeseed oil or canola oil are your friends here.

About the Ingredients for Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

Sweet Potatoes – Look for firm sweet potatoes with smooth skin.

Oil – I used grapeseed oil, but you can use any oil with a high enough smoke point and a neutral flavour. Canola oil is another great option.

Spices – Ground cumin, curry powder, smoked paprika, cayenne, and cinnamon give the sweet potatoes a nice spiced flavour but feel free to experiment yourself. Using salt and pepper with a bit of cayenne alone is really nice too.

Yogurt – I prefer to use greek yogurt for this dip, but you can use any unsweetened yogurt.

Lemon – You can use bottled lemon juice or frsh squeezed. It’s just a small amount so you will need around a quarter of a lemon to get that much.

Herbs – The dip uses fresh dill and parsley. I think you could skip on the parsley if you aren’t big on that flavour but the dill is too amazing.

Salt and pepper – Do not salt your wedges until they are ready or your wedges won’t turn out nice and crispy!
