Air Fryer Asparagus
My husband loves Asparagus!!! It is his favorite quick and easy vegetable to snack on. We used to make it on the barbecue or stovetop but now with air frying, it is so quick and easy to prepare.
We have been sharing a ton of frozen air fryer recipes so I am excited to share a recipe with fresh veggies. One of the best parts of this time of year is all of the fresh produce. Don't get me wrong I am also super happy it is now sunny and there is no snow in our forecast for a while.
This past winter was long and I am soaking up every day of sunshine and warm weather we get.
We make asparagus in the air fryer as often as possible. It is great for breakfast with eggs, as a snack, or for lunch and dinner with a chicken burger or really anything. It is an easy veggie to whip up and know that we are getting some green in our meal plan.
I am working on finally photographing all of our favorite air fryer recipes. We use the air fryer daily and I am finally taking the time to write down the recipes we make all the time and take photos. You can expect to see a ton of Air Fryer recipes over the next few months.
I love that this roasted asparagus in the air fryer only takes a couple of ingredients and most of them are pantry staples.
- Fresh Asparagus
- Salt and Pepper
- Olive Oil
Optional - Garnish with parmesan cheese, sprinkle with garlic powder before cooking, squeeze a bit of lemon juice onto the asparagus,
Bacon - if you love bacon-wrapped asparagus and really who doesn't try putting in a couple of strips of bacon with the asparagus. They will cook up great together.
Kitchen Tongs - Tongs will help make it easier to remove the asparagus from the air fryer after it is done air frying.
Make sure to trim the asparagus before cooking.
Completely coat the asparagus with olive oil and salt and pepper to get the flavor on all of the asparagus spears.
The cooking time may vary depending on your air fryer. Cook the asparagus just shy of the time listed and check to see how it looks and then add on a few minutes if needed.
This asparagus recipe takes minutes to prepare and tastes amazing.
If you are using thick stalks of asparagus you may need to add a minute or two to the cooking time. Check and make sure that the asparagus are cooked the way that you enjoy them.
