  • If Deep Frying: Fryer filled with Oil OR a Pan filled with about an inch of rapeseed oil
  • If Baking: an Oven or Air Fryer




  • Wash and peel the sweet potatoes
  • Cut your sweet potatoes into slices, wedges or chips
  • Bring a saucepan of water to the boil
  • Using a slotted spoon, gently place the sweet potatoes into the boiling water for around 5-10 minutes
  • When potatoes have slightly softened, (not overdoing it, otherwise they'll break when coating); remove from water and drain
  • (Optional) Mix the vinegar with the Almond Milk – this makes the almond milk a little sour to give a similar taste to buttermilk.
  • Dip the potato pieces into the Almond Milk
  • Spread our Bird Dust onto a plate, then press the pieces firmly into the coating
  • (Optional) Want it crunchier? Dip the coated pieces back into the almond milk and then back into the coating one more time.
  • Once the the pieces are fully coated, let them rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • (Optional) If you're like us and you don't like small patches that aren't coated. Use any leftover coating to give it a final coating, just before cooking


  • Deep fry at 165°C (350°F) until coating crisps up. Want less oil? Use our Spray & Bake Oil (see our shop) and oven bake at 200°C (390°F) or Air Fry until cooked
  • Sprinkle your Vegan Fried Sweet Potato with some salt. Try it on the side with some dipping sauces, as a main or in as a starter
