Air Fryer Sriracha Fries: The Ultimate Loaded Veggie Delight!

Calling all french fry fanatics! This recipe is about to become your new air fryer obsession. We’re talking crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside fries, piled high with a delicious medley of seasoned veggies. And to top it all off, a creamy sriracha mayo that adds a delightful kick you won’t be able to resist.

Mastering the Art of the Crispy Fry:

  • The Chipper Advantage: Investing in a potato chipper is a game-changer! It ensures your fries are all cut evenly, which leads to uniform cooking and maximum crispiness. But don’t worry if you don’t have one. Just grab a sharp knife and aim for fries that are similar in thickness for consistent results.
  • The Soaking Secret: Don’t underestimate the power of a good soak! Soaking your potatoes in ice-cold water helps remove excess starch. This is the secret weapon for achieving those irresistibly crispy fries you crave.
  • Spice it Up (or Not)! The beauty of this recipe is its customizability. Want a milder sriracha mayo? Use less sriracha. Craving a fiery kick? Add a little more! You can also adjust the spice level of the veggies by adding more or less chili powder.

Instructions:

  • Soak It Up!

The first step to crispy fry heaven is a good soak. In a large bowl, submerge your sliced potatoes in ice-cold water. Let them soak for at least 45 minutes. This removes excess starch, a key factor for achieving maximum crispiness. Once the soaking time is complete, drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a clean paper towel.

  • Veggie Prep Party!

While the potatoes are soaking, get your colorful veggie medley ready. In a bowl, toss together the shredded cabbage (or chopped green cabbage), diced red pepper, and finely chopped onion. Add the chili powder, paprika, cooking oil, salt, and pepper. Mix everything well to ensure all the veggies are evenly coated with the spices.

  • Air Fryer Veggie Time!

Preheat your air fryer to 190°C (375°F) for 2 minutes. Spread the seasoned veggie mixture in a single layer on the air fryer basket. Cook for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through, until the veggies are tender-crisp. Don’t forget to add the chopped garlic during the last minute of cooking for an extra flavor boost. Once cooked, remove the veggies from the air fryer and set them aside on a plate.

  • Spice Up Your Fries!

Now it’s time to season your fries for that extra layer of flavor. In a separate bowl, toss the dried potato fries with the paprika, garlic granules, onion granules, and a sprinkle of salt. Spray them lightly with olive oil to coat everything evenly.

  • Air Fry Magic!

Crank up the heat on your air fryer to 200°C (400°F). Carefully spread the seasoned potato fries in a single layer on the air fryer basket. Make sure they’re not touching or overlapping for optimal crispiness. Cook for 22-25 minutes, tossing them a couple of times during cooking to ensure even browning. You’re looking for golden brown, crispy perfection!
