Airfryer Butternut Squash Fries

Butternut Squash Fries

I love fries. Steak fries, curly fries and even butternut squash fries. I had a butternut squash that needed to be cooked and well this is what happened.

You can actually do the exact same thing with sweet potatoes.

First step is to always wash and scrub the outside of your produce. You can just use water but often I will use baking soda and vinegar mixture too. Once you scrub your produce you are ready to start making your fries.

What you need:

  • air fryer
  • chopping board
  • cutter knife
  • mixing bowl
  • ice
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • olive or avocado oil
  • spatula
  • Butternut squash or sweet potato

Step 1

Since I used a butternut squash I sliced off the skin. Then I used the wavy cutter knife to make the fries look cute. You can grab one by clicking the image below or use a standard knife. Once sliced put in a bowl with cold water for 30 minutes to an hour. I added ice to make it colder and let them soak for 30 minutes. It helps reduce the starch.

Step 2

After 30 minutes or longer dry the fries with paper towel. Put in a separate bowl and drizzle with oil (1 tsp per potato) and generously season with sea salt and pepper.

 

 

Step 3

I used a medium sized butternut squash so I did this in 3 batches in the air fryer as you don’t want to overlap the fries.  Turn air-fryer  (we have a philips one and use it several times a week)on 390 degrees. I also spray the inside of the air fryer with non stick spray, then add the first batch of seasoned fries and cook 12-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like them.

I like things crunchy and crispy.
