- Air Fryer
- Basting Brush
- medium sized summer squash (2 yellow squash)

How to Make Squash in the Air Fryer
Prepare the squash by washing and chopping off the ends. Cut the squash into ¼-1/2” rounds.
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add the cut squash into a small bowl and toss or brush with olive oil, garlic powder, and ground black pepper.
Add the squash to the basket of your air fryer. There may be a little overlapping. Try and allow as much air flow to each piece as possible.
Cook the squash for 13-15 minutes, tossing the rounds about halfway through the cooking time.
Garnish with fresh parsley or fresh herbs before serving.
NOTE: This recipe was made using a Cosori air fryer. If you are using a different brand of air fryer, you may need to adjust the cooking time and temp slightly.
How do I store Air Fryer Squash?
The best way to store any leftover squash is to place it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. To reheat, air fry at 350 degrees F for a couple of minutes, or until heated through.

You will use less oil when making this dish in the air fryer, and the type of oil you use is your own personal preference. Consider using extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, and grapeseed oil.
