We love this dish because it’s the perfect vegetarian or vegan air fryer dish.  The butternut squash can be served as a side dish for any occasion, especially for holidays. Air fried butternut squash is fantastic as  Thanksgiving side dish that won’t take up the oven or stove. It is also great for any time of the year. Add the crispy squash on top of a salad or add your favorite salad toppings on it. Chopped nuts, cheese and dried fruit are just a few options to add to the squash. If you have any leftovers, it’s great in tortillas for butternut squash quesadillas or tacos!

Air Fryer Butternut Squash

Cooking time is approximate and depends on the size you cut the squash. If squash is cut smaller, it’ll cook faster and become crispier. Bigger pieces will require more cooking time and more shakes and stirs.  If your air fryer is smaller, cook this in batches
