Preheat the Sous Vide Machine: Fill a large container or pot with water. Attach the sous vide precision cooker and set the temperature to 194ºF/90ºC.
Season the Sweet Potatoes: Wash the sweet potatoes, peel the skin, and cut them into 1/2-inch cubes.
In a large bowl, mix the sweet potato cubes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss until they are evenly coated.
Vacuum-seal the Bag: Add the seasoned sweet potato pieces into a vacuum-seal bag or zip-lock bags and arrange them in a single layer.
Vacuum seal the bag if you have a vacuum sealer, otherwise, use a zip-lock bag using the “water displacement” technique: Just seal all but one corner of the bag. Slowly place it in the water bath, and make sure everything below the zip-line is covered by water. Then seal the rest of the bag. (Make sure to arrange in one layer. If your bag is not large enough, use multiple bags).
Make sure the sweet potatoes are fully submerged. You can add sous vide weight or use heavy kitchen items to weigh the bag down if necessary.
Sous Vide Cook: Cook for 30 minutes.
When the timer goes off, take the bag out and remove the sweet potatoes from the bag and transfer to a plate.
Season with more salt, pepper and optional chopped fresh parsley.
