Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Yellow Onion Air Fried Dish

One of my favorite healthy sides is a sauteed summer squash and zucchini with onions to pair with a small portion of my favorite protein, like grilled sirloin, broiled salmon, or roasted chicken. However, by the time you prep and chop all the veggies, heat up the skillet, wait for the wonderful vegetable trio to reach its perfect al dente texture, and tend to the needs of your demanding toddler, thirty minutes have passed, half your veggies are still under-cooked, and the rest of them are mush.

Simplify this savory side dish with your air fryer, and never hover impatiently over the stove again.

To chop and prep your veggies, we recommend a very sharp, high-quality cutting knife, like the Kibaby kitchen knife. Set the temp on your air fryer, add your ingredients, and set the timer. In only 25 minutes, you’ll sit down to a perfectly cooked veggie trio that will tempt you to toss your frying pan.
