1tsp garlic powder
¼tsp sea salt
Cut off the ends of your delicata squash, then slice your delicata squash into 3 or 4 pieces. Use a spoon to remove the seeds and stringy parts from the middle of each piece.
Slice the squash in 1/2 inch thick rings and set in a medium bowl.
Toss the slices with the remaining ingredients, coating evenly.
Place in your air fryer basket and air fry at 400° for 14 minutes. Halfway through cooking (at 7 minutes), open the air fryer and toss the squash rings so they cook evenly.
Serve immedietly or store in an airtight container for 2-3 days!
If you want to double this recipe, make sure to only air fry one delicata squash at a time. This will take you about 30 minutes, but if you don't cook it in batches, it won't cook evenly and will be a little mushy.
