This air fryer asparagus recipe is a quick and easy way to enjoy this healthy and delicious vegetable



  • 1 pound of asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges (optional)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F for about 5 minutes.
  2. While the air fryer is heating up, wash the asparagus and trim off the woody ends.
  3. Once the air fryer is ready, place the asparagus in a single layer in the basket. You may need to cook in batches if your air fryer is small. Season the asparagus with olive oil, salt, and pepper until evenly coated.
  4. Air fry for 5-8 minutes, shaking the basket every 2 minutes to ensure the asparagus cooks evenly. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the asparagus.
  5. Once the asparagus is tender and slightly browned, remove from the air fryer and serve immediately with lemon wedges if desired.
