Air Fryer Butternut Squash Fries

Bucket List Tummy

Prep: 7 Mins

– 1 medium butternut squash – 2-3 tbsp avocado oil, divided – 2 tbsp cornstarch – ½ tsp cinnamon – 1/4 tsp ginger – 1/8 tsp nutmeg – ¼ tsp salt

Cook: 16 MINS


Step 1

Peel butternut squash and cut it in thirds, saving the bottom “bulb” part for other use. Remove the seeds. Take the bigger thirds of the butternut squash and cut them into smaller fry shapes, uniform in size.

Step 2

Add your fries to a medium mixing bowl. Add cornstarch, avocado oil and spices and shake it up well so they are evenly coated.

Step 3

Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it’s preheated, add the fries to the basket in one layer and air fry for 14-17 minutes. I recommend to shake the batch halfway through cooking. Cook in multiple batches for best results.

Step 3

Pair with ketchup, ranch, garlic aioli, tahini, honey yogurt sauce. To make honey yogurt sauce, combine plain yogurt with a splash of honey and lemon and modify to desired taste. Enjoy!
