Boiled Sweet Potato Seasoning

  • 0.5 tbsp onion powder 
  • pinch of salt 
  • pinch of pepper 
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander 

You cook sweet potatoes like the regular potato. Peeled with a pinch of salt. The sweet potato should not be cooked through as it will lose its flavour. After cooking and draining, you can add various spices. We really like onion powder, but chopped coriander is also a nice variation. 

Sweet Potato Fries Herbs

We have written 2 separate blogs about making sweet potato fries ‘ How to make sweet potato fries? ‘ and for making sweet potato fries in the airfryer, read the blog about ‘ Sweet potato fries from Airfryer’. But now we’re going to spice them up!

  • 1 tsp paprika powder 
  • pinch of pepper 
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 

When the potatoes have been baked in the airfryer, they can be seasoned with salt and pepper and paprika powder. Sometimes we add onion powder over it. Really a surprise! 

The fries can of course also be fried ‘normally’ in frying fat. After draining the fries, sprinkle these herbs over the potato.  

Sweet Potato Herbs And Pops

  • From half a lemon, juice 
  • 1 tbsp coriander 
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp Butter 

After roasting, unfold the aluminum foil and open the potato by cutting off the skin. Then squeeze half a lemon over the sweet potato. Sprinkle some fresh herbs, such as coriander over it. The combination is delicious.

It is also nice to add a dollop of butter to the sweet potato. To add the butter, open the potato first. Then you can sprinkle cinnamon over the butter. Keep the cinnamon handy because you can always sprinkle it again when the cinnamon runs out.

Sweet Potato Grilling And Seasoning

  • Coarse sea salt 
  • chili flakes  

After grilling the potato slices, it is nice to grind coarse salt on top. Then sprinkle some chili flakes over it. Be careful, too much may taste a bit too hot.  

Sweet Potato Herbs And In The Oven 

  • pinch of cayenne pepper 
  • 1 tsp Rosemary 
  • pinch of salt 
  • sunflower oil 

Before the potato goes into the oven, brush the potato with oil and sprinkle rosemary over it. This will allow the herbs to soak into the potato nicely. Sprinkle salt and cayenne pepper over the dish after the baking process. Enjoy your meal!
