First confession, I wasn’t expecting my kids to love this as much as they did, and second I wasn’t going to add it to the website, because it’s not really much of a recipe, but last night, when I posted pictures of my dinner (I do it every night in my air fryer group, Air Fryer Recipes & Tips, everyone started asking me for the recipe.
So here it is…
It is officially squash season, at least in Philadelphia, as the cold weather is upon on us, and as a mom I try to get my kids, to eat at least one vegetable at dinner, I usually have a salad too, but today I picked up a lovely acorn squash. Squash is a great versatile vegetable that you can do almost anything to, and it usually tastes amazing. If you haven’t tried air-fried or grilled squash you are so missing out.
Squash is cooked differently in all parts of the world, from the Italian who serve it deep-fried, deep flower fritters to Turkey, where they make zucchini pancakes. It can be added to any recipe for a healthier spin on it.
When you are purchasing any type of squash here are some things to be on the lookout for:
- Squash should be firm and shiny skin without blemishes
- Ideally, the steam should be attached.
To store squash:
Keep in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days, longer than that the squash will start to wilt. Squash also can be frozen, in order to freeze, slice, then boil for about 2 minutes, then plunge into cold water. Then seal in an airtight container. Frozen acorn squash can be kept for about one year.
This is a recipe that my mother made when we were children, it was truly the only way, I would eat squash I love it, it’s a wonderful childhood memory, that I was able to pass down to my own children. I hope you and yours enjoy it, as much as I did.
Here are the simple steps, so you can make it in your very own air fryer,

This is a great vegetable, it is so versatile, you can use it in so many ways. My favorite is with some butter and some brown sugar. But it is a great substitute for pasta, so the only limitations is your own imagination. It’s a KETO friendly vegetable.
