Air-Fried Purple Yam Fries with Sour Cream Sriracha Sauce

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Purple yams are tossed in sriracha salt and olive oil then air-fried until crispy. A simple combination of cool sour cream and sriracha complements the sweet yam. The procedure for cooking yams in an air fryer is different than cooking potatoes."

Perfect amount of oil. My Black and Decker air dryer required a bit more time (prob 25 min total) and I am a salt fiend so I added Lawry's seasoned salt. Delicious!
