Creamy and Tender Air Fryer Butternut Squash

Creamy and Tender Air Fryer Butternut Squash The intense heat circulation of the air fryer yields butternut squash that is creamy and soft, with a wonderfully caramelised skin. The side dish that goes well with any entrée or the ideal addition to your favourite dishes.

Ingredients For Air Fryer Butternut Squash:

  • One small butternut squash
  • One tablespoon olive oil
  • To taste salt and pepper
  • Spices and herbs of your choice (such paprika, rosemary, or thyme) are optional.

Instructions For Air Fryer Butternut Squash:

  1. For around five minutes, preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. As the air fryer heats up, get the butternut squash ready. Using a vegetable peeler, skin the squash and cut it in half lengthwise. Take out and dispose of the seeds. Chop the squash into your preferred size—cubes or slices.
  3. Put the butternut squash, either sliced or cubed, into a mixing dish. Add a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and your preferred herbs and spices. Toss to distribute the seasoning evenly over the squash.
  4. After preheating, place the seasoned butternut squash in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Your air fryer’s size will determine whether you need to cook the squash in batches.
  5. Verify the doneness of the squash. It ought to be soft and simple to puncture with a fork. Cook longer if necessary to achieve the desired level of tenderness.
  6. When the butternut squash is done, carefully take it out of the air fryer basket and place it on a platter.
  7. Use the soft and creamy air-fried butternut squash in your favourite dishes or serve it as a side dish.

Notes For Recipe:

  • Cut your squash in quarters if it’s too big to fit in your air fryer.
  • The size of the squash can affect how long it takes to cook.
  • Adjust the seasonings to your taste and the way you plan to use the squash. Any recipe calling for roasted squash can use this squash in place of roasting.
  • To add more flavour, feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices and adjust the seasoning to your personal taste. Have fun!
