Chinese Five-Spice Air Fryer Butternut Squash Fries

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"These 'fries' made with Chinese five-spice powder are sweet and spicy, and they're a fiber-full, lower-carb alternative to French fries. Made in the air fryer, they're less messy and can cook up while the rest of your meal is in the making."
