I am obsessed with the air fryer we recently purchased. I can’t get enough of fried errryyything. That shouldn’t surprise me. Prior to clean eating, I ate fried everything.. but the not-so-good-for-you, found-in-a-drive-thru-or-food-truck kind. This is the best of both worlds. Dreams really do come true.
You can see a few posts back where I highlight the benefits and details of this magical air fryer, plus, you’ll get a sweet cinnamon toast crunch waffle recipe! I’m finding it unbelievable the amount of things that can be fried. Plus, it’s insanely easy to use, wash, and use again. Anything that cuts down on time spent monitoring, I’m all in. I wouldn’t call myself forgetful… but…
These bowls are great, even if you don’t have an air fryer. I originally created this recipe to use with sweet potato noodles, long before the air fryer. The same concept applied, I would peel and spiralize the sweet potatoes, then put them in microwave to soften for a minute or so, and steam them in a covered skillet until they were soft. My husband still prefers the sweet potatoes over the butternut squash. We operate in two different mindsets, his being that death by vegetable is inevitable.
That’s what I love about these bowls – they are totally customizable! You can change everything from the base to the protein to the different toppings. The spinach on the bottom is also totally optional, but is a great way to make this bowl heartier and get in some extra veggies!
This bowl is also 21 Day Fix approved, if that’s a plan you’re following. If it’s not, you should be, it’s life-changing! Without making any changes to the recipe below, this meal will count as 3-4 greens (depending on the size of your squash), 1 red, 1/2 yellow, 1/2 blue, and 1/2 tsp.
