Air Fryer Asparagus
Crispy flavorful Air Fryer Asparagus with a small amount of olive oil and freshly grated parmesan cheese is a quick and easy side dish recipe.
Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
Coat asparagus in olive oil with salt and pepper. After fully coated, shake off any excess and lay in a single layer in your air fryer basket. Cover with a thin layer of grated parmesan cheese.
Air fry at 400°F for 7 minutes. No need to turn or flip if they were able to fit in a single layer. Serve immediately.
Serving size might be considered small if you love asparagus. Consider doubling the recipe if you're looking for larger portions.
- Asparagus preparation: In addition to trimming the ends, I've also found that peeling the bottom half of each stalk, if they are particularly woody, creates a more tender bite of asparagus.
- Grated parmesan: Pre-shredded parmesan will not stick to the asparagus. It is highly recommended you grate it from a block.
- Cooking time varies: Depending on the thickness of the stalks, air fryer asparagus will take about 7 minutes to cook. Be sure to check doneness and extend or decrease cooking time, as needed.
