Whole30 Airfryer Roasted Sweet Potatoes - Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, EASY! Airfryer or oven

These Whole30 Roasted Sweet Potatoes are my husband’s favorite side dish. He requests them for his birthday and Father’s Day every year. They have more flavor than your average roasted sweet potatoes, but they come from spices you probably already have in your kitchen.

Why We Love These Whole30 Roasted Sweet Potatoes

First, they only use five ingredients (I don’t count salt/pepper). The ingredients are basic spices you might already have in your cupboard! It’s an easy one to throw together on a busy weeknight.

Second, you can cook them in your oven or air fryer. I love my air fryer, and these cook up fast in it. But oven method instructions are included if you need those instead.

Finally, we love that they are Whole30, Paleo, Vegan, Plant-based Whole30, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, and EASY! It takes only 10 minutes to dice, toss, and put these in the oven or air fryer.

Ingredients

I love how simple the ingredients for my Whole30 Roasted Sweet Potatoes are! I can find them all at my local Walmart.

  • Sweet potatoes – We prefer orange-fleshed sweet potatoes (sometimes called Yams). And, yes, you can try this with white potatoes if sweet potatoes aren’t your scene. However, these are best with orange-fleshed sweet potatoes.
  • Oil – Olive or avocado oil works equally well in this recipe.
  • Dried basil – I find this in the spice aisle of most grocery stores. I buy my spices in bulk at Winco or Sam’s Club.
  • Garlic powder – Granulated garlic or garlic powder works for this recipe.
  • Salt – Regular old table salt here!
  • Paprika
  • Pepper – Black ground pepper is what I use in this recipe.

Instructions

  • If using the oven, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Chop potatoes into small, even chunks or cubes.
  • Toss potatoes with oil to coat.
  • In a small bowl, mix all the spices.
  • Toss potatoes with spices.
  • Bake on a parchment-lined cooking sheet at 425 for 45-50 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • AIR FRYER MODIFICATION: Follow all the steps to chop and coat the potatoes. Air fry for 15 minutes at 350 degrees (stirring halfway through), then 10 minutes at 400 degrees until desired crispness (also stirring halfway through).

We love these as is or with my date mustard sauce. They’re a great side dish to steak, grilled chicken, or fish!

We always double-batch this recipe. They freeze great!

TO FREEZE: Lay cooked potatoes in a single layer and freeze. Once frozen, store in a sealed container for up to 3 months. They are fast and easy to reheat in the microwave, air fryer, or oven!

  2. Absolutely delicious. Super flavorful and easy to make with ingredients I already had. Cooked them in the air fryer and they came out with a nice crunch on the outside.
    I’ll definitely make these again, and plan to try the spice combination on white potatoes also

    I love this recipe!!! It looks so simple but that’s what is great about it- I always have these ingredients on hand, it is quick and SO delicious! I have a hard time not just eating all of them straight out of the air fryer!

    I’m a huge fan of roasted sweet potatoes so it was fun to see another favorite recipe. I typically just throw sea salt and oil on my pots so it was yummy to use the extra spices. I do wish I had an air fryer for these though!
