Air Fryer Yellow Squash

Squash cooked in the air fryer is really quick and delicious. It comes out nice and browned in places without being too mushy in the middle, and it only takes 8 minutes.


– Yellow squash – Olive oil – Salt – Pepper

I really don’t like it when yellow squash is so soft that it’s mushy in the middle. I therefore prefer methods of cooking it that use high heat for a short time.

Preheat air fryer to 400°F.


Trim the two ends off each squash. Slice them in half lengthwise, end to end. Slice into 3/4-inch slices.


Put the yellow squash slices in a medium bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.


Transfer to the air fryer basket and toss to get them into a single layer.


Cook for 5 minutes. Check and see if they’re browned and slightly softened in the middle. If not, toss and then cook another 2-3 minutes.
