Air Fryer Asparagus
Air Fryer asparagus tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper and of course parmesan cheese!
Cooked in half the time it takes to cook in the oven and just as good.
Toss the asparagus in the oil.
Add the salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.
Toss to coat the asparagus completely.
Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 390 degrees.
Add the asparagus to the air fryer pan and cook for 7 minutes.
Toss and continue to air fry until the asparagus is to your desired doneness.

Wow simple recipe. I have a plan to buy the Air Fryer too 😊👍
You won’t regret it. 😋
Great then 😊👍
Mmmm – and you say just as good – but sometimes we find the air fryer results are better –
I agree especially with wings!
I love how you get so much use out of your air fryer! I’m enjoying these ideas that go beyond air-frying chicken nuggets and tater tots 😊
Tomorrow I am posting steak! Thanks ❤️
This is timely. I have asparagus that I was intending to cook in the air fryer but hadn’t looked for a recipe yet. Thank you. It looks yummy!
How perfect, enjoy!
Thank you! 🙂
Thanks nobody else likes asparagus here so guess who made a meal out of this? Lol
I adore asparagus
I love asparagus and that looks delicious. I love how simple and healthy it is!
Me too and I couldn’t wait until mine popped up in my garden in May so I broke down and bought some..lol
looks great! what do you think about the small oven air fryers. my toaster oven is horrible and I don’t like the big air fryers that sit on the counter. Thanks Diane and hope all is well!❤️
We originally bought an air fryer and I really loved it. Kept it in the basement with all my other gadgets so that tells you it was pretty easy to lift. However, the brand we bought had an issue with the drawer. It closed fine when it was cold and first starting to cook but once it was hot, the door warped and was awful to close in order for it to turn on again. I was gifted the Ninja Foodi from my parents and my favorite feature in it is the air fryer, however, it is very heavy and it’s hard to move so it stays on my counter. (It is still my favorite gadget) I give a thumbs up to any larger air fryer (mine is an 8 quart and holds a whole chicken).
This is great feedback and that says a lot of it is your favorite gadget. I’ll look into this brand. Thanks a lot Diane!!! Wow, a whole chicken!!! Amazing! ♥️🙏🥰
The Ninja Foodi bakes, sautés, air fryer, slow cooker, pressure cooker, dehydrator and basically replaces every gadget in one unit. I am their biggest fan with this unit (I need to get them to sponsor me hahahaha).
Yes and get paid for it!!!
I am lacking in that department..lol
We’ll have to change that! Lol 😂
For asparagus I have to wait until May – June. I wrote down the recipe
Yes my homegrown will be up then too. I was craving it and broke down and bought it from the store.
Perfect afternoon snack! Thanks, C
I actually made this my lunch…lol Nobody else likes asparagus (imagine that) and I eat the entire bunch for lunch. I can’t wait for my homegrown asparagus to sprout.
I love asparagus, but never even thought to try it in the air fryer. Thanks now I’m going to try this.
It was great Christy. Wait until you see my post tomorrow with the air fryer.
Can’t wait to see it.
I hesitate to support your ventures in really healthy food, but it looks great.
Hahaha I have a LOVE for asparagus. I grow my own and have a large section in my garden. I rarely buy it at the store because I have so much in the spring freshly picked from the garden. For some reason I had a craving for it and bought it from the store. I thought why not in the air fryer. I will be posing some really “different” recipes this week.
This sounds and looks fantastic!
Thank you Nisha they were delicious!
Makes me wish I owned an AirFryer☆
I am having so much fun with mine.
“Serve immediately”? You mean “EAT IMMEDIATELY” – yum! You make me want to break out my air fryer in the back of the pantry 🙂
I make this as my lunch and eat the entire bunch by myself…lol
You are sure are getting a lot of mileage out of this Air Fryer. Nice hot asparagus with parmesan cheese sprinkled on it – yum!
It has been so much fun. I got a bunch of accessories for Christmas for it so I am looking forward to using them too. Thanks Linda!
You are lucky Diane – you will never run out of topics for your blog!
This looks so tasty
One of my favorites, thank you!
Yum, yum. I love asparagus and this sounds so easy to make. Asparagus is on sale this week too. I am going to give this a try for sure.
Thanks and enjoy Carla. I can’t wait until May when my homegrown asparagus pop up. I have so many plants that I eat it like every other day.
I tried a few times to grow asparagus, but it never took.
Awe what a shame. Mine just keeps multiplying. It actually came up on the complete opposite side of the garden so I had to move it. I get so much that I cut it when it is only about 4″ high and so tender. It has been there for about 25 years now.
My mother-in-law ‘s asparagus was that way.
