  • 12 ounces Trader Joe's butternut squash zig zags (340 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Put the Trader Joe's squash zig zags in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the squash zig zags out in your air fryer basket or air fryer tray. If you have an air fryer oven, put the tray in the top rack position.
  • Air fry for 10 minutes at 375°F (190°C), then stir and flip the squash zig zags. Air fry for 8-10 minutes more, or until done to your liking.


This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). This air fried butternut squash zig zag recipe is a healthy veggie side dish with minimal oil. You can easily make this into a low-calorie meal by adding some lean protein and another veggie or two. Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken and Air Fryer Tilapia Fish go well with butternut squash zig zags.
For a higher calorie side dish, you can toss the butternut squash zig zags with browned butter and sage and sprinkle with Parm. Check out my Air Fryer Butternut Squash recipe to see how it’s done.
Be sure to double (or triple) this recipe if your family has more than two people. You’ll need to cook the squash in multiple batches, but I promise it’s worth the wait!
