Air Fryer Butternut Squash Recipe

Air frying butternut squash is a splendid way to transform this humble vegetable into a delightful side dish that’s both nutritious and packed with flavor. The air fryer works its magic by circulating hot air around the squash, caramelizing the edges while keeping the inside tender and sweet. This method not only preserves the squash’s natural sweetness and nuttiness but also adds a crispy texture that’s irresistible. It’s a simple, quick, and healthy way to enjoy butternut squash, perfect for a cozy dinner or as a colorful addition to your holiday table.


  • 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 pounds): Peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes. This size ensures even cooking and a good balance between caramelized exterior and tender interior.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil: Coats the squash, helping it to crisp up while adding richness.
  • 1 teaspoon salt: Enhances the natural sweetness of the squash.
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper: Adds a slight kick.
  • Optional seasonings: Consider adding a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, or a mix of your favorite herbs like thyme or sage for an extra flavor dimension.
